A New Power and Delay-aware Routing Protocol
for Ad Hoc Wireless Networks
In Wireless Ad Hoc networks the nodes operate with limited battery energy. Thus, energy consumption becomes a crucial topic in the design of a new Ad Hoc routing protocols.Moreover, in order to support real-time applications, it is necessary to develop routing algorithms that take into account Quality of Service (QoS) parameters such as end-to-end delay, bandwidth, power level, among others. This is because the new services and applications such as video demand, and video conferencing, require a higher level of QoS than the other types of applications. In this paper, we propose a new protocol, called Power and Delay-aware routing protocol for Ad Hoc networks (PDRP) that is founded on the “Stable Path Routing Protocol based on Power Awareness” (SPR). This proposed protocol balances tradeoff between energy consumption and end-to-end delay. Our simulation experimental results show that there are significant improvements in the throughput and end-to-end delay for our proposed protocol as compared to the SPR and Ad Hoc On-Demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocols.
