Summary: 
In this paper, we propose a new dynamic load balancing scheme according to load threshold adjustment and incentives mechanism. The proposed scheme adjusts the load threshold of a node by comparing it with a mean threshold of adjacent nodes, thereby increasing the threshold evenly. We also assign the incentives and penalties to each node through a comparison of the mean threshold of all the nodes in order to increase autonomous load balancing participation.
