Abstract: In mobile ad hoc networks, each node acts as both host and router and performs all the routing and state maintenance. Due to the unpredictable movement of mobile nodes, the network topology of a mobile ad hoc network changes frequently. It will directly cause the more power-efficient and reliable routing protocols are needed. In this paper we propose a novel routing protocol, PEAODV (Power Efficient Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector for mobile Ad-hoc networks), that providing powerefficient and reliable packet transmission. PEAODV uses a new cost function to select the optimum path based on considering the minimum residual energy of the nodes on a path, and the path’s stability in accordance with the rate mobility of node and the available bandwidth and the radio frequency. Our study also compares the performance of the PEAODV protocol with the well-known Ad hoc On-Demand Distance Vector (AODV) protocol, Results obtained by a simulation campaign show that PEAODV increases the throughput and decreases the delay, route discovery time, data dropped and number of hops per route.
