Distance Vector routing selects the optimal routing path, but has high routing state and control overhead. Geographic routing is efficient in routing state, but physical distance might not be a good estimate for routing cost. Greedy Distance Vecotor (GDV) achieves the best of two worlds. GDV uses estimated routing costs to destinations which are locally computed from node positions in a virtual space. It is the first geographic routing protocol designed to optimize end-to-end path costs using any additive routing metric, such as: hop count, latency, ETX, ETT, etc. In addition, GDV requires no node location information.

Acceptance Ratio: 26/177=14.7%. [PDF]
We present a novel geographic routing protocol, MDT, with several major advances over previous geographic protocols. First, our protocol achieves an average routing stretch close to 1. Second, our protocol can be used for nodes located in d-dimensional Euclidean spaces (d>=2). Third, it guarantees message delivery for arbitrary connectivity graphs, and node locations which may be accurate, inaccurate, or arbitrary. MDT is scalable and communication-efficient.

When RFID tags are mobile and in large numbers, existing collision-arbitration protocols might not satisfy the scalability and time-efficiency requirements of many applications. To address this problem, we propose Adaptively Splitting-based Arbitration Protocol (ASAP), a scheme that provides low-latency RFID identification and has stable performance for up to billions of tags.

We present a tag cardinality counting scheme, LoF, with three major advantages. First, LoF reduces the time cost from O(N) to O(logN), where N is the tag number. Second, LoF increases the system operating range from O(L) tags to 2^L tags, where L is the length of a ALOHA frame. Third, LoF supports RFID systems with multiple readers.
