A Detailed Study on Energy Efficient Techniques for Mobile Adhoc Networks
The performance of wireless networks in the applications like transferring video files is subjected to dual constraints. Both minimization of power and other QoS requirements like delay, throughputs are have to be take care properly. Mobile Ad Hoc Networks are more perceptive to these issues where each mobile device is active like a router and consequently, routing delay adds considerably to overall end-to-end delay. This paper presents a survey on power efficient routing protocols for Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks. This survey centered on recent progress on power saving algorithms. In addition, the authors suggest one energy efficient technique which will reduce energy consumption as well as increase the lifetime of node and network.
