This paper presents a source based power-aware reactive routing protocol for Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs). It considers Quality of Service (QoS) parameters namely delay, throughput, bandwidth and cost of each link. Recent advances in MANETs have led to many new routing protocols specifically designed for mobile devices. Almost all of these routing(More)
The design of efficient routing protocols is a fundamental problem in a Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET). Many different protocols have been proposed in the literature, each one based on different characteristics and properties. Some of these protocols have been studied and their performances have been evaluated in detail focusing on aspects like routing(More)
In this paper, we present an extensive ns-2.33 simulation based performance comparison of four widely known stability-oriented on-demand Mobile Adhoc Network (MANET) routing protocols. Our simulations show that modified Power DSR (PDSR) routes are more stable than existing DSR routes, which are more stable than DSDV and AODV routes. This also results in an(More)
The mobile ad hoc networks are gaining importance because of their versatility, mobility and ability to work with a limited infrastructure. In the mobile ad hoc network, each node works as a router as well as host. It is generally decentralized network, where all network activities include route discovery and message delivery must be executed by the nodes(More)
As technology rapidly increases, diverse sensing and mobility capabilities have become readily available to devices and, consequently, mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are being deployed to perform a number of important tasks. In MANET, power aware is important challenge issue to improve the communication energy efficiency at individual nodes. We propose(More)
