A Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is a dynamic self configuring network that can be formed without the presence of an trusted, pre configured infrastructure or platform. Various protocols have been developed for the purpose of communication between the nodes in MANET. Since the nodes are in constant motion it is challenging to achieve communication among the nodes reliably. Energy is spent while transmission and reception of information. The intermediate nodes act as router and forward the data and lose energy.
