A well known and still open issue of wireless ad hoc networks is the unfair energy consumption among the nodes. The specific position of certain nodes composing an ad hoc network makes them more involved in network operations than others, causing a faster drain of their energy.

Abstract

A well known and still open issue of wireless ad hoc networks is the unfair energy consumption among the nodes. The specific position of certain nodes composing an ad hoc network makes them more involved in network operations than others, causing a faster drain of their energy. To better distribute the energy level and increase the lifetime of the whole network, we propose to periodically force the cooperation of less operative nodes while overwhelmed nodes deliberately stop their service. A dedicated ad hoc network routing protocol is introduced to discover alternative paths without losses in the overall network performance.
