An efficient broadcast-based information transfer method based on location data over MANET

In a disaster situation, mobile ad hoc networks can be considered as one of the communication methods when the communication infrastructure is unavailable. Under these circumstances, the number of redundant packets consuming power should be controlled to save battery power and prolong the life of the network. In this paper, we propose an efficient broadcast-based information transfer method using location data to reduce the redundant packets while achieving high data reachability.
