Location Based Minimal Overhead Shortest Path Routing Protocol in MANET
A Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is one consisting of a set of mobile hosts capable of communicating with each other without the assistance of base stations. Mobile ad hoc networks are self-organizing and self-configuring multi hop wireless networks where, the structure of the network changes dynamically. Since a destination node might be out of range of a source node, a routing procedure is always needed to find a path, so as to forward the packets appropriately between the source and the destination. This paper suggests an approach to minimize the routing overhead and focuses to on finding the shortest route to deliver the packet from source to destination and also minimize the time delay for finding the route.
