In the last few years, Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANET) have gained increasing attention from both the researchers and the actual users. As MANET nodes are generally battery-powered devices, the challenging task is how to reduce the energy consumption of nodes and hence conserve energy of the whole system, which extend the lifetime of the network to a reasonable time. One way to achieve this goal is efficient routing protocol algorithm in MANET. Therefore, the authors have taken location in account during route discovery and route maintenance. But in Location-Aided Routing (LAR) of MANET, due to nodes mobility inaccuracy of location information may result in constant flooding, which will reduce the network performance. They propose a modified-LAR algorithm to improve the efficiency of LAR.
