In this paper, the authors proposes an Energy Aware Routing Protocol (E-AODV) based on AODV which incorporates local routing of intermediate nodes to increase the lifetime of the network .NS2 (Version 2.34) simulator is used for the simulation of new protocol and AODV protocol for the performance parameters packet delivery ratio and delay. This implementation demonstrates that how small changes in the principle of the AODV protocol can efficiently balance the energy consumption between nodes, which increases the network lifetime and performance. Results obtained using the Network Simulator proves that E-AODV is better than AODV.
