A Local Recovery Routing Protocol With Clustering Coefficient
Nodes in ad hoc networks communicate with other nodes via wireless multi-hop links. In on-demand routing protocol, nodes want to send data will provide route discovery to find routes. Route discovery is typically performed via flooding, which consumes a lot of control packets. Due to node mobility, the network topology change frequently and cause the route broken. In this paper, the authors propose a Local Recovery Routing protocol with Clustering Coefficient (LRRCC) which can reduce the route discovery times when route failure occurs. The clustering coefficient is one of properties in complex network. Simulation results show the protocol can decrease the number of control packets and increase route delivery ratio.
