Energy Control Based Routing for Mobile Ad Hoc Network

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Mobile Ad hoc network can operate in a self-organized and do not have any predefined infrastructure. However, the problem of limit energy often affects the communication in such network. In this paper, the authors present an energy management model which can effectively reduce energy consumption. Mobile nodes in such model transfer between power-save mode and active mode triggered by communication events and keep-alive timer. Based on the energy management model, they propose a new routing protocol with joint function considering both transmission power and residual energy of mobile nodes. Simulation experiments show that the proposed routing protocol with energy control mode can achieve higher performance and extend the lifespan of network.
