Liu, Q & Linge, N & Wang, J & Ji, S & Ma, T H 2012, 'An Context-aware Management and Control Mechanism in a Mobile Ad-Hoc Environment', International Journal of Grid and Distributed Computing, 5(4), pp.21-32.
Complete integration and interaction of network objects can be achieved in a mobile ad-hoc environment. Yet, the dynamic nature of free movement and interaction among these objects also brings challenges on information representation, processing and communication. This paper presents a context-aware mechanism, which is able to implement efficient information exchange and management between nodes in a mobile ad-hoc network (MANET). Rejoining and information loop issues happened heavily in a mobile ad-hoc environment has been discussed in this paper. According to the simulation results, our approach to context-aware management and control makes the information loop problem well controlled.
