MECB-AODV: A Modified Energy Constrained Based Protocol for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
Mobile ad-hoc networks are collection of mobile devices connected by wireless links to perform some computational tasks. This temporary arrangement does not have any infrastructure hence lacking in permanent source of energy. To fulfill this requirement these independent mobile devices are entirely dependent on battery power. The aim of this paper is to design and evaluate the performance of an energy aware routing protocol, called MECB-AODV (Modified Energy Constraint protocol Based on AODV) which is derived from AODV protocol. This protocol is based on the remaining energy of intermediate nodes to maintain the connectivity of the network as long as possible.
