Wireless networks have become very popular along with the increasing demand of mobile devices, which has given birth to the need of Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET). MANET is a collection of wireless mobile nodes which communicate and exchange data with each other without any central administration or wired infrastructure. Due to mobile nodes and the frequently changing network topology the overhead in the network increases, also the use of broadcasting technique affects the network overhead. Thus in the proposed protocol they use the uncovered neighbor set generation mechanism to restrict the broadcasting limit, which helps in reducing the network overhead.
