An Adaptive Energy Efficient and Reliable Gossip Routing Protocol For Mobile Adhoc Networks

S.Rajeswari and Y.Venkataramani
Abstract—The current ad hoc network routing protocols require all the nodes to be awake and keep listening which results in waste of energy. The existing energy efficient routing protocols and topology management schemes increase the computing complexity and acquire extra overhead or equipments. To over come these drawbacks, in this paper, we design an Adaptive Energy Efficient and Reliable Gossip Routing (AEERG) Protocol for Mobile Ad hoc Networks. The major objective of the protocol is to achieve energy efficiency and reliability. In this protocol, we set a counter to represent the current number of neighbors at each node which are kept in active state. The value of the counter is adaptively adjusted based on the packet delivery ratio. This results in less energy consumption and reliability in the network-wide communication. By simulation results, we show that the proposed protocol achieves good delivery ratio and high throughput with less packet drop and energy consumption.

Index Terms—Delivery ratio, energy consumption, Mobile Adhoc Networks, Reliability, Reliable Gossip Routing (AEERG) Protocol.
