A variety of routing protocols have been proposed and several of them have been extensively simulated or implemented as well. In this paper, the authors compare and evaluate the performance of three types of On demand routing protocols-Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol, which is unipath, Adhoc On-demand Multipath Distance Vector (AOMDV) routing protocol and Temporally Ordered Routing Algorithm (TORA). In this paper, they note that on comparing the performance of AODV and AOMDV, AOMDV incurs more routing overhead and packet delay than AODV but it had a better efficiency when it comes to number of packets dropped and packet delivery.
