Our paper “On the cost of geographic forwarding for Information-Centric Things” has been accepted in the IEEE Transactions on Green Computing and Networking. It explores if and when geographic forwarding can provide benefits for lossy low-power networks. Both feasability (i.e., memory and CPU capacity of low-power devices) and efficiency (energy consumption of both control- and data-traffic) are taken into account. Through a mixture of modeling, simulation, and experiments on standard IoT boards, we show that geographic forwarding halves the memory footprint on reference deployments and yields significant energy savings, especially for dynamic topologies.
