A Demonstrator for Routing in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks*

Tamás Lukovszki

This applet demonstrates the routing mechanism using the fault tolerant location service HLS described in [1] and the GRID location service described in [2].

Quick Help:
  • Left mouse button: select source and destination nodes
  • Right mouse button: change the status (alive/crashed) of a node
  • Field LS: the distributed location service. GLS: GRID location service, HLS: Hypercubic location service.
  • Field #replicates: the minimum number of nodes having the same position data base in HLS. The value 0 indicates that the number of replicates forced to be approximately log(# nodes).
