Energy Efficient Routing Algorithm for Future Ad-hoc Wireless Networks

Dr. J. Seetaram | Dr. M. Nagaraju Naik


Abstract: This study addresses a critical issue in the field of mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) by proposing a routing technique that combines load balancing and power-saving strategies. This research is highly relevant in the context of wireless communication, where energy efficiency and network performance are of paramount concern. Conventional efforts have primarily concentrated on energy-saving shortest path-based schemes, which may lead to network failure because certain nodes may run out of energy quickly due to frequent use, while other nodes may not be used at all. This may result in an imbalance of energy and a decrease in network performance. It is suggested an energy-effective ad hoc on-demand protocol for routing that fairly distributes the energy load among nodes and also keep all inactive nodes into sleep mode. It is focused on increasing the packet delivery ratio (PDR) and energy savings. The proposed protocol is compared with contemporary protocols, Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) and Efficient Load Balancing Method (ELBM). It is found that the proposed approach uses 13% less energy than DSR and 6% less than the ELBM model. In contrast, PDR has increased by 6% and 5% in relation to DSR and ELBM, respectively.
