DTN Routing

A particular form of delay tolerant networks (DTN), known as pocket switched networks (PSN) attempts to route packets through interpersonal contacts and not through fixed infrastructure like cell towers or wifi nodes for reasons of privacy, energy consumption, or lack of technical capacity (either on the infrastructure side, or on the transmitter side such as RFID or smart badge technologies). These PSN routing systems must be evaluated against real contact histories or sophisticated mobility models based on contact histories. We have performed some initial work in this area, and continue to work towards future publications based on the datasets we have collected.
