Adjusted Probabilistic Broadcasting for Hovering Information

Xiaoying Shuai


Hovering information is generated by specific area in a mobile ad hoc network (MANET) to be attached to the anchor area for some time. To improve the reachability, flooding is a fundamental mechanism with hovering information. Probabilistic flooding schemes are proposed to deduce the number of broadcasts. This paper proposed an adjusted probabilistic broadcasting (APB) for hovering information. Hovering node broadcasts hovering information with p1 when an uninformed node enters the range of hovering node. Nodes within hovering area relay the received hovering information with probability p2. The probability p1 and p2 are decided by informed and uninformed neighbors, respectively. The analysis shows that the APB outperforms other candidate hovering information algorithms in terms of the number of broadcasts.
