There are 2 different ways to achieve efficient energy in ad-hoc network. First method is, number of nodes is used to form a connected backbone and the other nodes sleep to save energy. This is effective for low traffic networks. The second method implies power control technique. This technique is effective in high traffic conditions. The first method is not effective in high traffic conditions. Similarly, the second method is not effective in low traffic networks. So, in this paper, the authors propose a Demand Based Energy efficient Topology (DBET) that helps in reducing the energy consumption for mobile ad hoc network i.e. MANET, by adjusting the topology for various network traffic conditions.
