Study of Location Based Energy Efficient AODV Routing Protocols in MANET
A Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is a collection of mobile hosts that move in different directions and speeds without the need to maintain connectivity with existing network infrastructure. If two mobile nodes are within each other's transmission range, they can communicate with each other directly; otherwise, the nodes in between have to forward the packets for them. In such a case, every mobile node has to function as a router to forward the packets for others. Thus, routing is a basic operation for the MANET. Energy is one of the important issues in Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET). Nodes are in network are working in the presence of limited energy then energy efficient routing is necessary for reducing energy consumption.
