Figure 9: Lifetime comparison of the DER scheme and the LPF scheme in a 1d network where nodes move away with a probability of in each time slot. The network lifetime is shown in the unit of time slots. The DER scheme offers a network lifetime that is 3-4 times longer than the LPF scheme, in which the forwarding rules are assumed to be precalculated and distributed to the nodes.
