Broadcasting is effective data dissemination mechanism for route discovery in Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET). Although, it has many benefits, it also causes some problems such as the broadcast storm problem, which is pertaining to redundant retransmission, collision and contention. Many techniques have been proposed to solve them but none of them guarantees the lowest bound. To overcome broadcast storm problem and reduce routing overhead, proposed system minimizes routing overhead using rebroadcast delay and rebroadcast probability. It also considers nodes having highest energy will broadcast the RREQ packets to its neighbors.
