Title: "Enhanced Context Aware And Content Centric Routing Strategies For IoT Networks

Guide: Dr. Ragesh G K, Professor, ASIET, Kalady, Kerala.  

Description: Here in this thesis two issues namely Load balancing and Mobility has been considered and suitable modifications on conventional RPL have been done. A Dual context centric approach embedded with Conventional RPL has been proposed. The sensitivity of the data has been taken as the prime factor and routing of the data will be based on the sensitivity of the data. The performance evaluation of DCRL RPL has been conducted with all the state of the art existing systems and DCRL RPL proves to be the most efficient technique proposed so far. For combating mobility issue downward routing based on mobility has been presented with a content-centric approach.
