Another major necessity for the routing algorithm is to be able to withstand physical compromise of nodes, since the areas of deployment of the sensor nodes tend to be unattended.
Social IQ also incorporates an intelligent routing algorithm to analyze and direct queries to the right team who can subsequently use the in-built platform for internal collaboration and feedback.
Our simulation experiments have compared traditional directed diffusion routing algorithm and improved directed diffusion routing algorithm and the results demonstrate the effectiveness of our proposed method.
Finally, using the routing algorithm based on the position of nodes, target's information sends to the sink In addition, we have focused on routing algorithms, with the review of protocols, have presented new algorithms called Position Base Routing (PBR) with greater speed and lower power consumption, and ensure the correct packet is compared to previous algorithms.
Other topics include data fusion, energy efficiency, agility improvement in cognitive radio, topology-based classification of routing protocols, a temporarily ordered routing algorithm, and an ad hoc on demand distance vector routing protocol.
In this paper we consider SAMPLE, a collaborative reinforcement learning based routing algorithm, which performs competitively with other routing protocols of similar category.
Bellman-Ford Routing Algorithm, also known as Ford-Fulkerson Algorithm, is used as an algorithm by distance vector routing protocols such as RIP, BGP, ISO IDRP, and NOVELL IPX.
There are four major routing protocols for adhoc networks: Temporally Ordered Routing Algorithm (TORA)[4], Ad Hoc On Demand Distance Vector (AODV) [5], Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) [6] and Destination Sequenced Distance Vector (DSDV) [8].
Key functions include the start display; giving a full tactical overview of the start area including calculations for line bias angles; time and distance data to line intersections and 'time to go' and 'time to burn' options; polar calculations; the most accurate routing algorithm available and much more.
As noted above, the first dimension represents the corporate perspective on efficiency as reflected in the traditional skills-based routing algorithm.
A Microsoft spokesman said: "In this specific case one road segment between Haugesund and Trondheim had a mistaken attribute which caused the routing algorithm to ignore that road and generate the error in calculating the driving directions.
