A Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is a collection of autonomous wireless nodes without any infrastructure and centralized administration. The main motivation of this work is to analyze AODV and DSR routing protocols based on different performance metrics in a real world environment. This test-bed allows for direct comparisons between ad-hoc routing protocols Though ad hoc network routing protocols, such as DSR and AODV have been extensively studied through simulations, fewer test-bed implementation has been carried out. It is essential in order to understand relative merits or limitations under different network conditions.
