Abstract

The energy consumption in mobile devices has been identified as a growing problem in network access. Maintaining devices connected to the network for long periods of time quickly depletes their already limited battery capacity. This problem gets worst in wireless ad hoc environments where devices besides the energy consumption associated with normal behavior, also support routing functions, consuming additional energy for packet relaying functions. In order o improve the lifetime and hence the performance of wireless ad hoc networks, this paper discusses the specification for an energy aware wireless routing protocol called E2DSR and describes the protocol implementation both in ns-2 and sensor hardware. E2DSR uses some mechanisms of Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) protocol, but defines a new structure for control packets, changes the routing behavior in nodes, implements a new “Energy Table” and creates a whole new algorithm for route cache and selection.
