Fuzzy-Based Adaptive Cross Layer Routing Protocol for Delay Sensitive Applications in MANET
Source: Cairo University
In order for Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANET) to support service requirements of multimedia and real-time applications, the underlying routing protocol must provide Quality of Service (QoS) in terms of average End-To-End Delay (ETED). Towards this end, the authors investigate a number of conventional routing protocols, such as AODV (reactive routing) and DSDV (proactive routing), under different traffic and mobility conditions to obtain the lowest average ETED. Then, they develop a new routing protocol that enables each mobile node to separately switch between reactive routing mode and proactive routing mode based on the current node status.
