ENERGY EFFICIENT ROUTING MODEL IN MOBILE AD-HOC NETWORKS USING DYNAMIC SOURCE ROUTING PROTOCOL
Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs) consists of a set of wireless mobile nodes communicating to each other without any centralized control or fixed network infrastructure and can be deployed quickly. The potential applications include emergency disaster relief, battlefield situations, mine site operations, and wireless classrooms or meeting rooms in which participants wish to share information or to acquire data. Anycast is an important way of communication for replicated service applications in terms of resources, robustness and efficiency, when mobility and link disconnections are frequent. Anycast allows a source node to transmit packets to a single destination node out of set of several destination nodes. We propose a mobility and quality of service aware routing scheme in MANETs that employs node movement stability model. These models are used in the route discovery process to select nearest k-servers. A server among k-servers is selected based on less congestion, route expiry time, number of hops, and better stability. The simulation results indicate that proposed method demonstrates reduction in control overheads, path delays and improved packet delivery ratio compared to existing methods such as queue utilization, residual energy and node degree. Which in turn saves more energy; hence our proposed model proves to be more energy efficient. Keywords: [Energy efficient Routing, MANET, DSR Protocol, Route discovery, Maintenance]
