Abstract

This paper presents a new routing metric for mobile ad hoc networks. It considers both coverage area as well as link expiration information, which in turn requires position, speed and direction information of nodes in the network. With this new metric, a routing protocol obtains routes that last longer with as few hops as possible. The proposed routing metric is implemented with Ad Hoc On-Demand Distance Vector Routing (AODV) protocol. Thus, the performance of the proposed routing metric is tested against the minimum hop metric of AODV. Simulation results show that the AODV protocol with the new routing metric significantly improves delivery ratio and reduces routing overhead. The delay performance of AODV with the new metric is comparable to its minimum hop metric implementation.
