Abstract: Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) consist of thousands of small sensor nodes with sensing, computation and wireless communication capabilities. The main challenging task in WSN is routing. There are various types of routing protocols available for WSN. Ad hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol is one of routing protocols for mobile sensor networks. AODV avoids the counting-to-infinity problem of other distance-vector protocols by using sequence numbers on route updates, a technique pioneered by Destination Sequence Distance Vector (DSDV). This protocol utilizes the shortest route for communication between nodes. Hence, energy consumption and battery power of nodes is increased by using the same nodes with shortest route for communication several times. Energy efficient Ad hoc On-demand Distance Vector (EAODV) routing protocol is developed by incorporating energy aware algorithm along with the shortest route in the existing Ad hoc On-demand Distance Vector Routing protocol to reduce battery power and lifetime of WSN. In this paper, throughput performance of EAODV and AODV protocol has been examined and compared by varying packet size in CBR traffic, packet rate, coverage area and number of packets with the help of ns-2 simulator.
Keywords: Coverage area and number of packets with the help of ns-2 simulator.
