ABSTRACT

End-to-end path setup and maintenance are very important for mobile ad-hoc wireless communications, because of the mobility and the limited battery capacity of the nodes in the networks. the AODV routing protocol is the one of many proposed protocols. However, there are route failure problems with the proposed protocols between intermediate nodes due to such mobility and exhausted battery characteristics, and this is because only the shortest hop count is considered for the route setup. If route failure happens, problems such as th…e waste of bandwidth and the increment of the energy consumption occur because of the discarding data packets in the intermediate nodes and the path re-setup process required by the source node. In addition, it obviously causes the network lifetime to be shortened. This paper proposes a routing protocol based on the AODV routing protocol that it makes use of the remaining energy, signal strength and SNR of the MAC layer resources to setup a path.
