Ad-hoc On-Demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol has been and continues to be a very active and fruitful research protocol since its introduction in the wireless ad-hoc networks. AODV uses a static value for its route lifetime parameter called Active Route Timeout (ART) which indicates the time that the route can stay active in the routing table.(More)
Detection of malicious, compromised and selfish node attacks is urgently needed to protect Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANET) and their applications from failures. Once a MANET component is affected by a malicious, compromised or selfish node its operational state shifts from normal state to vulnerable state. Online monitoring mechanisms can collect important(More)
Mobile ad-hoc network is a network without infrastructure where every node has its own protocols and services for powerful cooperation in the network. Every node also has the ability to handle the congestion in its queues during traffic overflow. Traditionally, this was done through Drop-Tail policy where the node drops the incoming packets to its queues(More)
Fuzzy logic and proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controllers are compared for use in direct current (DC) motors positioning system. A simulation study of the PID position controller for the armature-controlled with fixed field and fieldcontrolled with fixed armature current DC motors is performed. Fuzzy rules and the inferencing mechanism of the fuzzy(More)
Routing is an important functional aspect in wireless ad-hoc networks that handles discovering and maintaining the paths between nodes within a network. Due to nodes mobility, the efficiency of a dynamic ad-hoc routing protocol depends highly on updating speed of network topology changes. To achieve continuous updated routing tables, the nodes periodically(More)

The challenge in creating a routing protocol for ad hoc networks is to design a single protocol that can adapt to the wide variety of conditions that can be present in any ad hoc network environment. The routing protocol must perform efficiently in environments in which it suffers from high nodes mobility and many wireless transmission constraints. Because(More)
Problem statement: The research presented in this study looks into Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks (MANETs) environment that has varying node densities, called heterogeneous density environment. Such environment can be roughly associated with situations varying from areas struck by disasters to normal city environments. Approach: This study improved the performance(More)
Density-based probabilistic routing algorithm (AODV–Probabilistic) has been introduced for mobile ad hoc networks. Under ideal settings, it has been proven to provide drastic performance improvement over AODV and OLSR routing protocols. In this paper, the authors study the effect of inaccurate location information caused by node mobility under a rich set of(More)
