Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) is an infrastructure less network. In MANET each node is self-configurable and intermediate nodes forwards packets in order to support neighbor node data exchange. In Ad Hoc On-Demand Distance Vector (AODV) Routing, source node broadcast Route REQuest (RREQ) to neighbor node for finding route to destination node. The intermediate node with low battery also broadcast RREQ packets. When destination node sends Route REPly (RREP) packet, the low battery intermediate node goes down and it can't forward RREP packet on reverse path to source node.
