An Energy-Efficient Routing Protocol for MANET in Internet of Things Environment

Quy Khanh Vu, Ngoc Anh Le


MANET-IoT networks are currently being focus developed and expected to become popular in next-generation mobile networks due to their simplicity and efficiency in solving real problems in a wide range of areas such as smart agriculture, smart health care, intelligent traffic, military, entertainment, and smart cities. Because of the nature of mobile network nodes, saving energy for MANET is always a complicated problem. In this paper, we proposed a saving energy routing protocol that uses an integrated routing metric from hops number and remaining energy metrics for decision-making to selects a fit route. Besides, we evaluate the performance of the proposed protocol on NS2 simulation software. Simulation results demonstrated the proposed protocol improves the network lifetime and network performance parameters compared to traditional protocols.
