Abstract

In underwater acoustic sensor networks (UASNs), efficient packet transmission is essential for monitoring new marine technologies. However, the uneven distribution of nodes and inappropriate selection of forwarding nodes lead to routing voids in adjacent nodes. Aiming at the problem, we propose a routing void handling protocol (RVHP) based on Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) for UASNs. RVHP effectively detects and avoids void nodes and trap nodes through a void avoidance mechanism, and then uses an AUV-assisted network repair mechanism to timely deal with failure routing in the communication area. AUV adopts a greedily path-finding strategy to visit void nodes, and realizes the void repair of UASNs. Simulation results show that RVHP can effectively improve the packet transmission rate and energy utilization rate.
