A mobile ad-hoc network is an infrastructure less temporary network without any centralized administration. In such network, all nodes are mobile and can be connected dynamically in an arbitrary manner. In mobile ad-hoc networks, limited power supply is a challenge. So energy efficient mechanisms should be combined with existing routing protocols to reduce node failure and improve the network lifetime. This paper presents an Energy-Efficient Position Based Routing protocol (EEPBR) for mobile ad hoc networks. The protocol deals with four parameters as residual energy, bandwidth, load and hop count for route discovery.
