Research Area:  Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
Existing energy efficient multi path routing protocol in Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) are not spatially disjoint and did not consider link availability and queuing delay. Hence an energy efficient disjoint multipath routing protocol using Simulated Annealing technique is proposed in this paper. In this protocol, routing will be performed based on the path cost and link cost metric, which in turn is dependent on the network and node characteristics like link availability, network load, battery drain rate, etc. Thus, the nodes selected for routing will be appropriate and will ensure successful data delivery at the destination. Since this technique takes into consideration all the minute network and node features, it can be assured that most of the network failure situations can be avoided, and thus guaranteeing efficient network operation.
