Energy-Aware Delay Sensitive Routing Protocol Based on Adaptive Threshold Energy and Queue Size
A Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is a self-organized, self-configured network. The nodes in the network automatically establish and maintain connectivity with other nodes. Energy is a precious resource in wireless ad-hoc networks because most nodes in such network are driven by battery which cannot be recharged in most cases. In this paper, the authors propose two new energy-aware and delay sensitive routing protocols, one based on average residual energy and queue length (EEDS-1), the other based on fuzzy threshold energy and queue length at each hop (EEDS-2). The results are compared with the standard AODV routing protocol. It is found that the proposed algorithms EEDS-1 and EEDS-2 are both energy efficient and delay sensitive as compared to AODV routing protocol.
