Abstract

In a message ferry technology for sparse ad hoc networks, a ferry node stores a message from a source node and carries it to the destination node. In this technology, message ferry route design is one of the most important technical issues. To improve the performance, we propose a cluster-based route design where the ferry moves along the path formed by the centers of the clusters.
