Communication in mobile ad hoc networks and delay tolerant networks seeks to address the technical routing issues of heterogeneous networks that may lack continuous network connectivity. This work proposes the Time Message System (TMS), a delay tolerant routing solution for wireless networks. The protocol predicts the distance in function of time between nodes according to the time of last meetings. TMS was designed for high node density IEEE 802.11 networks. Simulation results in such networks show that TMS can deliver the same number of messages earlier than a traditional delay tolerant routing solution well-known by the research community.
