An Enhanced Packet Forwarding Scheme Using Random Way Point Mobility Model With AODV in Mobile Ad-hoc Network

S. Karthik, A. Kowshika and C. Maheswari


Discovering and maintaining routes between nodes are one of the biggest challenges in MANETs the ultimate goal of the MANET community is to provide a set of standardized protocols that can be both robust and scalable. This study proposes routing protocols based on the heading direction angle + Number of hops, Number of hops + heading direction angle, the best heading direction angle route. The first one is designed to calculate the angle direction and when the angles are the same take the best hop count. The second one is designed to calculate the best hop count and when the hops counts are the same take the best angle direction. The last one is designed to calculate the average of all heading direction angles in the route and find the best route from the source to the destination. The researchers measure the performance of the proposed approach by comparing it with the well known On-Demand (reactive) routing protocol (AODV).
