"Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol is the one of the most popular routing protocol for mobile ad-hoc networks. This paper optimizes AODV protocol by minimizing the sum of load and delay. Enhancements include developing an improved version of AODV protocol which uses load and delay parameters to select a path with minimum weight. This is a weight based algorithm where weight is calculated in terms of load (i.e. number of packets received at a node) and delay (end-to-end delay). Recently, the authors have proposed this multipath based routing scheme on MANETs. It is an appealing scheme which outperforms AODV and TAODV in terms of end-to-end delay, packet delivery ratio in different simulation scenarios."
