Simulation evaluation of an energy efficient routing protocol for mobile ad hoc networks
IEEE Computer Society
Energy conservation is one of the most important issues in ad hoc networks, where computers used are usually supplied with limited autonomous resources. Recent studies show that the energy consumed for routing data-packets in wireless ad hoc networks can be significantly reduced compared with the current min-hop max-power routing protocols. But designing a power efficient routing protocol is one of the most challenging issues. In this work, we have conducted a detailed simulation to evaluate the performance of our energy efficient routing protocol [An energy efficient routing protocol for mobile ad hoc network] derived from DSR, in this simulation we have compared our protocol with the standard DSR considered as benchmark.
