Probabilistic Routing in Delay Tolerant Networks

DTNs face the difficult tasks of peer discovery and self-organization. Much of current research focuses on topology optimization. In contrast, PRoPHET (probabilistic routing protocol using history of encounters and transitivity) relies on contact behavior, focusing on patterns of interaction between network participants rather than end-to-end paths within the topology. The PRoPHET router and Bluetooth networking layer are contributions to the Delay Tolerant Networking Reference Implementation, a project sponsored by DTNRG, an IRTF research group.
