Abstract

The fields of location-tracking, ubicomp functionalities and MANET transmission strategies are subject to intense research [1-57]. Their merging is also subject to lots of attention. In particular, the enforcement of location-aware transmission strategies is prone to enhance energy management in ubicomp. Amongst the enhancements awaited [1] are: the application of land-based GPS systems, improved location refresh rates and accuracy, development of better protocols optimised for transmission according to distance criteria and refining the precision of the distance criteria to apply the protocol. The knowledge of distance coverages by transmitted packets in ubicomp and corresponding variations over different node densities, is definitely useful for refining transmission protocols in MANETs. Such an empirical study was made previously [26] whereby the metric Packets Per Distance, PPD, was devised and studied. This was followed by another study [42] in which the trends of parameters of equations for metric PPD were studied
