Energy Depletion in MANET While Using AODV Routing Protocol
Ad hoc networks are mobile in terms of functionality and offer numerous applications. Along with these features, certain limitations also accompany these networks i.e. battery power, transmission range etc. Wireless links are used to convey packets between all participating nodes while these nodes roam within any specified network area. On-demand routing protocols are used far and wide in these networks and AODV (Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector) is considered a lightweight routing protocol among its counterparts. With varied parameters, they have analyzed the network execution as well as the energy utilization by using energy computational model.
