"In MANET (Mobile Ad hoc NETwork) the physical connectivity of the network keeps on changing dynamically. Because of the several MANET constraints such as limited bandwidth, mobility, battery power etc; it becomes very important to design a protocol that suits the requirements for MANETs. In this paper, the authors suggest a protocol mechanism which is loosely based on a reactive protocol AODV (Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector protocol). The proposed protocol uses the time concept based on first come first served basis for path choosing process, hence the name Time On-demand Distance Vector protocol (TODV)."
