The basic operation of delay tolerant mobile sensor network (DTMSN) is for pervasive data gathering in networks with intermittent connectivity, where traditional data gathering methods can not be applied. In this paper, an efficient mobility prediction-based adaptive data gathering protocol (MPAD) based on the random waypoint mobility model tailored for DTMSN is proposed. In MPAD, a node independently makes decision to replicate messages and send them to the neighbor sensor nodes with a higher probability of meeting the sink node. MPAD consists of two components for data transmission and queue management. Data transmission makes decisions on when and where to transmit data messages according to the node delivery probability, and the queue management employs the message survival time to decide whether the message should be transmitted or dropped for minimizing the transmission overhead. Simulation results show that the proposed MPAD achieves the longer network lifetime and the higher message delivery ratio with the lower transmission overhead and data delivery delay than some other previous solutions designed for DTMSN, such as direct transmission, flooding and message fault tolerance-based data delivery protocol (FAD).
