Due to the proliferation of smart mobile devices and the developments in wireless communication, mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are gaining more and more attention in recent years. Routing in MANETs is a challenge, especially when the network contains a large number of nodes. The clustering technique is a popular method to organize the nodes in MANETs. It divides the network into several clusters and assigns a cluster head to each cluster for intra- and inter-cluster communication. Clustering… CONTINUE READING
