A Routing Algorithm Based on Cellular Automata for Mobile Adhoc Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) are self organizing, adaptive and infrastructure less networks. Analyzing these networks is a complex task due to the high mobility and rapid topology change. Routing in MANETs is one of the challenging tasks. Although a lot of researches have done in this area, the usage of cellular automata in routing for MANETs has not been explored. The proposed routing algorithm is a new cellular automaton based routing algorithm for mobile ad hoc networks, which finds a route that not only has least number of hops but also supports Quality of service. The solution presented here, is based on selecting a delay constrained shortest path between source and destination as a best route by using cellular automata.
