Energy Efficient Routing in MANET Using OLSR
Energy-efficient MANET routing protocol OSLR is widely used for routing in ad hoc networks. Residual energy of node plays a vital role in route discovery in MANET. To support energy-efficient routing, accurate state information about energy levels of nodes should be available. But due to bandwidth constraints, communication costs, high loss rate and the dynamic topology of MANET, collecting and maintaining up-to-date state information is a very complex task. The authors focus on the inaccuracy of state information, more specifically the residual energy level of nodes that is collected by the control messages of OLSR. Inaccurate information effect the efficiency of OLSR protocol.
