A New RREQ Message Forwarding Technique Based on Bayesian Probability Theory
An ad-hoc network is a promising technology which can be applied in an extensive number of areas ranging from environmental monitoring to disaster management. Furthermore, ad-hoc networks can be implemented in application of sensors for process automation in a diversity of industrial applications. Events such as earthquakes can often serve to illustrate the weakness of centrally managed networks and the importance of research and development in ad-hoc networks such as Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs), where a centralized connectivity is not needed. MANET is a wireless network which consists of mobile nodes with no pre-determined infrastructure.
