Energy Efficient MANET Routing Using a Combination of Span and BECA/AFECA

  title={Energy Efficient MANET Routing Using a Combination of Span and BECA/AFECA},
  author={Mads Dar\o Kristensen and Niels Olof Bouvin},
This paper presents some novel approaches for energy efficient routing in mobile ad-hoc networks. Two known energy preserving techniques, Span and BECA/AFECA, are combined with a well-known re-active routing protocol, AODV, to create a new energy efficient routing protocol. Furthermore, the protocol is tuned towards usage in a nomadic network setting, i.e., a setting where some nodes are stationary and have a steady power source. The protocols are simulated extensively to examine their energy… CONTINUE READING
