Abstract—Delay Tolerant networks (DTN) are Ad-hoc mobile networks that aim to avoid traditional Internet limitations in difficult environments that are identified by intermittent connectivity, power outages, and difficult topographies by following the Store-Carry-and-Forward mechanism. In the present work, we are comparing Adaptive Fuzzy Spray and Wait routing protocol to other famous DTN routing protocols in terms of delivery rate, overhead ratio and latency average. During the simulations we are analyzing the impact of changing nodes buffer sizes and a bunch of DTN drop policies on the above metrics.
