Energy aware routing in mobile ad hoc networks is to find an energy efficient route that maximizes the network lifetime and minimizes the total energy costs in transmission. This paper proposes a novel Max-Min-Path (MMP) routing algorithm that defines an energy efficient route that consumes less energy with the maximum residual energy of nodes in the network. The process of finding an energy efficient route eventually leads to energy saturation in the network. To avoid this conflicting objective, a new solution is proposed as Max-Min-Path (MMP) routing algorithm. The proposed MMP algorithm outperforms the relationship between the energy path and the total energy consumed for multiple concurrent data transfers.
