A Mobile Ad-Hoc NETwork (MANET) is a temporary, infrastructure-less and distributed network having mobile nodes. MANET has limited resources like bandwidth and energy. Due to limited battery power nodes die out early and affect the network lifetime. To make network energy efficient, they have modified position based Location Aided Routing (LAR1) for energy conservation in MANET. The proposed protocol is known as VAriable Range Energy aware Location Aided Routing (ELAR1-VAR). The proposed scheme controls the transmission power of a node according to the distance between the nodes.
