These days' ad hoc networks have found many applications. Multiple ad hoc routing protocols have been proposed, of which on-demand routing protocols are very popular because they are easy to realize and have no power and priority concept for data communication in routing. In Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs), routing protocol plays the most important role. In the last decade, Ad hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol becomes the attention of focused research on MANETs world wide. A lot of protocols had been proposed to improve and optimize AODV routing protocol to achieve the best in quest of reliable protocol.
