The design of any routing protocols for Mobile Ad-hoc Sensor NETworks (MASNETs) is a complex issue because of the diversity of their potential applications that are constrained by power sources and dynamic mobile networks. These characteristics impose a new demand on the routing protocol which is a consequence of the mobile nodes. A mobile node can change position quite frequently, which means that the authors need a routing protocol that quickly adapts to topology changes. Using AODV routing protocol in MASNETs' application shows degradation in network performance due to high density and speed of mobile nodes.
