Abstract

A novel concept for situated service oriented messaging applicable in the context of biologically inspired opportunistic networks has been provided in this paper. The solution utilizes different contextual information sources to create and update a view of the communicational situation. Smart diffusion of relevant control data between neighbouring nodes using novel swarm intelligence based method enables spreading of information only to the interested nodes without unnecessarily disturbing the non interested nodes. The evaluations done against epidemic routing protocol indicate that the proposed solution lowers the amount of transmissions in the network, thus reducing precious resource usage in the nodes. This is achieved without introducing further delays or deteriorations in the message delivery ratio.
