Node Disjoint Minimum Interference Multipath (ND-MIM) Routing Protocol for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
Node-disjoint routing in MANETs is very essential to reduce the end-to-end packet delay and increase the packet delivery ratio. AODV (Ad Hoc On-demand Multipath Distance Vector) which is widely used for MANETs creates single-path route between a pair of source and destination nodes. Node disjoint paths may have worst performance then single-path if they interfere with each other due to the broadcasting nature of wireless communications. Greedy-based Interference Avoidance Multipath Routing (GIMR) protocol (2011) is an interference free node disjoint protocol but it uses GPS to discover the paths.
