Mobile Adhoc Networks (MANETs) is a wireless infrastructure-less network, where nodes are free to move independently in any direction. The nodes have limited battery power; hence we require energy efficient routing protocols to optimize network performance. This paper aims to develop a new routing algorithm based on the energy status of the node.
In this paper, it has been proposed a new Protocol for Mobile Adhoc Networks which is expected to achieve energy efficiency and reliability. The gossiping probability of a node is determined by the throughput. Differently from other proposals no external location service support, e.g., via GPS, is not required. Rather, the throughput is estimated from the “inside” of the network using feedback factor through the node propagation to the destination and the value of gossiping probability is adaptively adjusted. This results in less energy consumption and more reliability in the network.
