Title

A Load aWare Routing (LWR) based on Local information

Abstract

This paper suggests a new load aware routing (LWR) enhancement that improves on-demand routing protocols significantly in ad hoc networks. This paper describes deterministic characteristics of ad hoc networks and suggests improved routing strategies that can sustain the network functionality even under highly stressful data traffic. LWR evenly distributes the load throughout the networks. It also reduces redundant packet flooding which is major limitation of conventional ad hoc routing algorithms. Simulation results illustrate the performance improvements obtained with LRW by using new flooding control over conventional on-demand routings.
