Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) has become an exciting and important technology in recent years because of the rapid proliferation of wireless devices. A mobile ad-hoc network alive of mobile nodes that can move freely in an open environment. Communicating nodes in a MANET usually seek the help of other intermediate nodes to establish communication channels. MANET contains reactive protocols AODV is one of popular protocol. Route failure due to motion of nodes and lack of battery power thus route maintenance is an important issue.
