In delay tolerant networking (DTN) nodes exploit their mobility in order to carry messages to their intended destination. Thus the knowledge of a node’s neighbors over time, is a fundamental requirement for DTN nodes to exchange knowledge and messages. A typical problem in this task occurs when the neighboring nodes try to response to the neighbor discovery request initiated by a requesting node, during a fixed contention time window. In this project, started with my Master Thesis, I investigated a novel neighbor discovery protocol proposed for resource constraint devices (RFID tags) running according to the delay tolerant networking paradigm.
