Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANET) play an important role in connecting devices in pervasive environments. Each node in MANET can act as source and router. In this paper, the authors propose a On Demand Route Routing Protocol (ODRRP) with Broadcast Reply which combines the merits of both proactive and reactive approach. Like proactive approach, it maintains routing table at every node. However, it differs from proactive approach; that the routing table is not built prior to communication. Routing table is built in incremental steps during route discovery.
