This paper concerns the development and performance evaluation of protocols that provide geocast communication in an ad hoc network. The goal of a geocasting protocol is to deliver packets to a group of nodes that are within a specified geographical area, i.e., the geocast region. The geocast group consists of the nodes within this region at a given time. We present three different approaches for delivering packets to the geocast group and then evaluate these approaches via simulation. In addition, we consider the effect the random way point mobility model has on the performance evaluation of an ad hoc network protocol in general.
