In ad hoc networks, route failure may occur due to less received power, mobility, congestion and node failures. Many approaches have been proposed in literature to solve this problem, where a node predicts pre-emptively the route failure that occurs with the less received power. However, this paper encounters some difficulties, especially in scenario without mobility where route failures may arise. In this paper, the authors propose an improvement of AODV protocol called LOPPAODV (Link quality and MAC-Overhead aware Predictive Preemptive AODV).
