Abstract: This paper studies impact of changing mobility speed on the performance of a reactive routing protocol AODV with reference to varying mobility speed. Initially we observed the performance of AODV with increasing Network Load from 4 packets to 24 packets at the mobility speed of 20 m/s. Another scenario shows the performance of AODV with increased Network Load from 4 packets to 24 packets at mobility speed of 30 m/s. The performance of AODV is observed across Packet Delivery Ratio, Loss Packet Ratio and Routing overhead parameters. Our simulation results witness better performance of AODV as mobility speed is increased from 20 m/s to 30 m/s.
