Constraintless Approach of Power and Cost Aware Routing in Mobile Adhoc Networks

Wireless Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks require certain mechanisms of tracking and managing power consumption as they are using non-renewable energy sources i.e. the battery sources. A number of cost aware and power aware algorithms have been proposed so far to cope up with the problem of proper utilization of battery lifetime. This paper deals with creating a constraint less power and cost aware routing algorithm for MANETs. The thresholds and cutoffs involved in the previous algorithms are not kept into the consideration .This paper employs the cost aware mechanism when multiple numbers of nodes are capable of receiving and transmitting the packets. This is done to obtain an optimal path for communication.
