Energy efficient approach in MANETs Using CACO

Mohita trehan, Parminder Singh


Although establishing correct and efficient routes is an important design issue in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), a more challenging goal is to provide energy efficient routes because mobile nodes’ operation time is the most critical limiting factor. A recent trend in ad hoc network routing is the reactive on-demand philosophy where routes are established only when required. Most of the protocols in this category, however, use single route and do not utilize multiple alternate paths. This paper proposes an analytical analysis of energy parameters, their usage and their evaluation in ad hoc networks. The scheme is incorporated with the AODV protocol and the performance has been studied through simulation. The main purpose of this paper is to facilitate the research efforts in combining the performance of ACO with Cuckoo search algorithm to offer a more energy efficient routing mechanism.
