Abstract:

We present m-limited forwarding, a technique to reduce the cost of disseminating information in a power-constrained environment by limiting the cardinality of the subset of nodes which retransmit a packet. We show how this technique can be used to improve the performance of two ad-hoc routing protocols. m-AODV applies $m$-limited forwarding to the AODV routing protocol, and is used for networks with symmetric connections. The m-A4LP protocol is a modified version of the A4LP protocol, which can take advantage of the asymmetric links found in heterogeneous networks. Through a simulation study we quantify the benefits of the enhanced routing protocols upon the power consumption of the nodes and the packet loss rate of the transmissions.
