Sensor networks are emerging as a paradigm for future computing, but pose a number of challenges in the fields of networking and distributed computation. One challenge is to devise a greedy routing protocol – one that routes messages through the network using only information available at a node or its neighbors. Modeling the connectivity graph of a sensor network as a 3-connected planar graph, we describe how to compute on the network in a distributed and local manner a special geometric embedding of the graph. This embedding supports a geometric routing protocol based on the ”virtual” coordinates of the nodes derived from the embedding.
