A survey on mobility management protocols in Wireless Sensor Networks based on 6LoWPAN technology

Abstract : Mobility has the advantage of enlarging WSN applications. However, proposing a mobility support protocol in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) represents a significant challenge. In this paper, we propose a survey on the mobility management protocols in Wireless Sensor Networks based on 6LoWPAN technology. This technology enables to connect IP sensor devices to other IP networks without any need for gateways. We highlight the advantages and drawbacks with performances issues of each studied solution. Then, in order to select a typical classification of mobility management protocols in WSNs, we provide some classification criteria and approaches on which these protocols are based. Finally, we present a comparative study of the existing protocols in terms of the required performances for this network type.
