LAR-1: Affirmative influences on Energy-Conservation and Network Lifetime in MANET

Neelesh Gupta, Roopam Gupta


Nowadays, reduction of energy-consumption in Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks (MANETs) has been a herculean task. The LAR-1 position-based scheme in Ad-Hoc networks has recently invoked interest in the domain of energy conservation as it extends the network lifetime of the networks. The main objective of this new approach is, to achieve energy-aware routing by utilizing the sleep mode condition of mobile nodes in MANETs. In this paper, developments of performance-metrics using this new approach have been presented. Amazing results have been achieved through energy-aware routing by utilizing the sleep mode condition of mobile nodes in Ad-Hoc Networks. Using these developments, this approach has been found to be better than other protocols like DSR in networks.
