Application of GPS to Mobile IP and Routing in Wireless Networks
In this paper,we discuss how the location information provided by a GPS can be used at different layers of the TCP/IP stack of a mobile host. Our discussion focuses an application of the two GPS based net-, working protocols we have designed and implemented.The Network topology we are considering is composed of fixed Internet with base station at, the edges, ad hoc network and sensor network. In the network, base stations and mobile nodes are GPS equipped. The idea is to leverage the information of the mobile and base station positions ,obtained via the GPS,, to improve performance of the ad hoc routing, to adaptively determine the, appropriate base station capacity to be reserved strictly for handoffs, to collect data from sensors scattered to the medium and to inform mobile about, the prospective future location.
