We define techniques to compute energy-efficient paths, using the IEEE 802.11 fragmentation mechanism, within the framework of on-demand routing protocols. We focus on one specific on-demand routing protocol, namely the ad-hoc on-demand vector routing protocol (AODV), and show how it should be adapted to compute energy-efficient paths. The choice of energy-efficient paths depends on link error rates on different wireless links, which in turn depend on channel noise. We show how our scheme… CONTINUE READING
