Abstract: Wireless mobile ad hoc networks can be used as a means to ease and support life in an ordinary house. As future home appliances will have many useful built-in functions, a communication network that allows a user to access these built-in functions and to control the appliances is highly desirable. This paper proposes algorithms for clustering and message routing to manage mobility in a name-based home ad hoc network. The nodes are given names such as “living room TV”, “kitchen oven”, etc. for identification. This paper discusses the performance of three routing schemes for communication of nodes with mobility. The proposed algorithms handle mobility efficiently while ensuring a high accuracy on message delivery with a low number of control messages.
