Resource Utilization of DTN Routing Protocols by Calculating Energy Consumption of Mobile Nodes

  • Atul SharmaEmail author


In sparse area where no direct contact is present between mobile nodes and node mobility is high, then delay-tolerant networks (DTNs) are used in this kind of conditional area. Basically, DTN provides store-carry-and-forward principle to forward messages between nodes where nodes store message into its local temporary memory and forward messages until it is in the range of destination. DTN routing uses this mechanism for performing routing operation and repeats principle until the message is delivered to destination or its time to leave is expired. In DTN, nodes have limited battery life and limited storage for data transmission with; due to mobility nature of nodes, it is difficult to utilize node battery and storage efficiently. In this paper, energy consumption of nodes during data transmission is calculated and the impact of node mobility on routing protocols is observed. To implement the proposed mechanism, ONE simulator is used. Results show the proposed mechanism efficiently utilized DTN resources during data transmission.
