Energy Efficient DSDV (EEDSDV) Routing Protocol for Mobile Ad hoc Wireless Network

Dheeraj Kumar Anand, Shiva Prakash


Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) routing is highly dynamic network & power and bandwidth constrained as well as frequent topology changes are the challenges to which it must adapt to and converge quickly. As we know that it is not possible to give a continuous significant amount of power to mobile devices of MANET so that it could be active for long time. So many MANET nodes will be powered by batteries with limited lifetime. Some of the most exciting application for MANETs is in this energy constrained category to increase the time between recharging. It is possible if and only if energy consumption in communication or data packet transmission is less without interruption or packet loss. In This paper, we proposed an energy efficient Destination Sequenced Distance Vector (EEDSDV) routing protocol is proposed for MANETs. The EEDSDV overcomes the problem of more energy consumption in existing DSDV protocol. EEDSDV controls the transmission energy by variant transmission power mechanism and gives a power control approach for an energy efficient routing.
