Abstract:
Existing position-based unicast routing algorithms which forward packets in the geographic
direction of the destination require that the forwarding node knows the positions of all
neighbors in its transmission range. This information on direct neighbors is gained by observing
beacon messages each node sends out periodically. Due to mobility, the information that a
