Improvement of Battery Lifetime of Mobility Devices using Efficient Routing Algorithm


  • Sri Venkateshwara College of Engineering, Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering, Bengaluru, India


Ad-Hoc Network being one of the types of mobility devices that form a temporary mesh network. Routing is one of the techniques in Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) which is mostly adopted due to its dynamic topology nature. In MANETs, the major issues that need to be handled are battery power, bandwidth which are the limited resource. The main issues with mobile ad hoc devices are power consumption. The rate of energy consumption of each mobility device must be equally assigned and transmission power of each path should be minimized for increasing the network life time of each path in the network selection. In the proposed work, the Minimum Power Consumption Routing (MPCR) protocol is been studied and analysed followed by comparison with the existing power routing protocols such as Minimum Total Transmission Power Routing(MTPR) protocol and Minimum Battery Cost Routing (MBCR) based on Constant Bit Rate (CBR) traffic patterns.
