GPS Enabled Energy Efficient Routing for MANET
In this paper, the authors propose an energy aware reactive approach by introducing energy and distance based threshold criteria. Cross Layer interaction is exploited the performance of physical layer which leads to significant improvement in the energy efficiency of a network. Ad Hoc Networks consist of mobile nodes that self configure to form a network without established infrastructure. Due to node mobility, network topology changes unpredictably, due to this host needs to determine the routes together nodes frequently. Ad-hoc On-Demand Distance Vector routing protocol proposed in is one of the developed protocols that enable routing with continuously changing topologies. AODV establishes routes on demand basis. There have been several studies on AODV protocol and other on demand ad hoc routing protocols.
