Performance Investigation of DYMO, DSR, AODV and LAR Routing Protocols Using Different Mobility and Energy Models in MANETs
An ad hoc network is a collection of mobile nodes which communicate with each other using multi-hop wireless links. MANET nodes are equipped with wireless transmitters and receivers. In these networks, nodes act as router as well as host enabling the cooperation between them. In this paper, the authors focus on the impact of mobility models (random waypoint and group mobility model) and energy models (Mica Motes, Micaz, Generic) on the performance of reactive routing protocols AODV, DSR, DYMO, and LAR. With the help of Qualnet 5.2 simulator, they investigated various scenarios by varying number of nodes, maximum velocity of the mobile nodes, pause time and packet size.
