AODV is a prominent routing protocol for MANET that uses hop count as a path selection metric. However, AODV has no means to convey traffic load on current route. In this paper we propose a weight-based load balanced routing (WLBR) protocol for MANETs. The routing strategy projected in this paper focuses on distributing the traffic on the routes consisting of nodes with comparatively longer life and have less traffic to pass through. In this paper we also introduce a new metric, Aggregate… CONTINUE READING
