Implementation of a location-based routing protocol

Contact: Ljubica Blazevic

The scope of this project is the implementation of a packet forwarding mechanism for a mobile ad-hoc network. This is a network that is wireless, autonomous, self-organized, and independent of any fixed infrastructure. In such a network all networking functions are embedded in the terminals themselves. Such terminals are called terminodes. The goal of a project is to implement a packet forwarding algorithm where the only information that is needed is the destination location and the knowledge of node`s neighbours. The programming language is C, the knowledge of which is required for this project.

Benefits: getting knowledge on ad-hoc mobile networks and packet forwarding algorithms for such networks

Domain: Protocol design and implementation
