Implementing an Energy Aware Issues in MANET by Designing Efficient Routing Protocol
Mobile Ad Hoc NETworks (MANETs) are multihop wireless networks in which all nodes cooperatively maintain network connectivity. In such a multihop wireless network, every node may be required to perform routing in order to achieve end to end communication among nodes. These networks are energy constrained as most ad hoc mobile nodes today operate with limited battery power. Hence, it is important to minimize the energy consumption of the entire network in order to maximize the lifetime of ad hoc networks. Since the emergence of mobile computing, reducing energy consumption of battery operated computing devices has become a very active research area. The widespread popularity of mobile computing devices, such as laptops, handheld devices and cell phones, motivates this research area.
