Routing mechanisms in delay tolerant networks (DTNs) usually rely on nodes' mobilities to bridge gaps in space and time. Though they may depend on the movements of ordinary nodes, it is more desirable to introduce special mobile nodes called ferries dedicated to communication in DTNs. In this paper, we concentrate on the route design problem for multiple ferries. We introduce an analytically tractable model to describe message delivery delay in three different schemes for multiple ferry routing… CONTINUE READING
