Fairness and Satisfaction Model for DTN Applications Using Various Transportation Means

Abstract : Delay Tolerant Network suffers from lack of resources and disconnected contact nature. In DTN, all possible methods are used to transmit data including the physical transportations means. Aircrafts in commercial routes have been proposed to carry data from ground users along their flying routes. Delivery probability is compared when using aircrafts, buses and ferries. Results show that aircrafts provide higher delivery probability which is up to 62% better compared with buses and ferries. Furthermore, when there is lack of resources, it is difficult to satisfy all users’ demands for traffic. We propose a Fairness and Satisfaction (FS) model to enhance the users’ satisfaction during DTN limited and scarce resources. Various scenarios are tested for the FS model through intense simulations. FS model, when implemented, will improve user’s satisfaction up to 18 % and DTN fairness up to 20 % compared with the same scenario lacking the model.
