Abstract/Description:
In mobile ad hoc networks, it is challenging to solve the standard problems encountered in fixed network because of the unpredictable motion of mobile nodes. Due to the lack of a fixed infrastructure to serve as the backbone of the network, it is difficult to manage nodes' locations and ensure the stable node performance. The virtual mobile node (VMN) abstraction that has been applied implements an virtual mobile node that consists of a set of real nodes traveling on one predetermined virtual path to collect messages and deliver them to the destinations when they meet. It conquers the unpredictable motion with virtual nodes' predictable motion. But it encounters unavoidable failure when all the nodes leave the VMN region and stop emulating the VMN. We extend the idea of the VMN abstraction to the Multi-path Intelligent Virtual Mobile Node (MIVMN) abstraction, which allows the messages to switch between multiple Hamiltonian paths to increase the message delivery ratio and decrease the failure rate of the virtual nodes. Through simulation results we show that the MIVMN abstraction successfully meets our goals.
