Large-scale deployments of the Internet of Things (IoT) and distributed cyber-physical systems require routing and transport protocols that can operate correctly and efficiently in networking environments where nodes may be very small devices and lose routing state, and where messages may be lost or corrupted for many reasons. We discuss the limitations of using sequence numbers to ensure loop-free routing,  new approaches to loop-free multi-path routing, a way to attain on-demand and proactive routing  dynamically on a per-destination basis, and  routing approaches that do not  need destination-based routing tables to operate. We also discuss an approach to eliminate the need for end-to-end connections being used for reliable transport.
