The Internet has become a way of life delivering electronic mail messages, information, music, and video. The next challenge is how to deliver these services on the move to provide multimedia anytime, anywhere. Third-generation (3G) wireless was supposed to be the solution but digital radio provides a more efficient method. Digital audio broadcast using the Eureka 147 standard was designed to deliver audio services running at bit rates typically ranging from 64 to 192 kbits/s in the challenging environment of a moving car. This robust technology can also be used for data services and further enhanced with additional error correction to allow the transmission of multimedia content that has been encoded using MPEG-4 and Windows Media 9.

    Data dissemination in opportunistic networks has been extensively studied in recent years. In the resource-constrained opportunistic networks (e.g., the buffer size, the communication bandwidth and the energy of nodes are scarce), the nodes usually behave selfishly. In other words, the nodes...
