An Optimized Message Routing Approach inspired by the Landlord’s game in Disruption-tolerant Networks
we propose a method to forward messages inspired by the Landlord’s game in such a way that leads to more collaboration between selfish nodes. In our proposed method, each node joins one of the coalitions. In each coalition, the sender and receiver nodes play the role of landlord and worker, respectively. Both landlord and worker, upon relaying a message, receive reputation. In this way, both parties have a motivation to participate in forwarding operations. The simulation of the proposed algorithm was done using the ONE simulator.
