Paper Abstract

Mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a radio packet network without dedicated infrastructures. In recent years it has received tremendous attention because of its self-configuration and self-maintenance capabilities. However, because of node mobility and shared wireless links, its routing protocol design presents nontrivial challenges such as broadcast storm, stale route and delay. This paper proposes a location-based route self-recovery technique for source-initiated routing protocols. The purpose of route self-recovery is to reduce overhead and delay during route maintenance as well as allowing continuous packet forwarding for fault resilience. The ns-2 based simulation shows throughput and overhead improvements of source-initiated routing with route self-recovery and in the case of highly dynamic environments and heavy traffic loads, it is more robust and scalable than other protocols.
