In this paper, the problem of finding optimal paths in mobile ad hoc networks is addressed.

Abstract

In this paper, the problem of finding optimal paths in mobile ad hoc networks is addressed. More specifically, a novel bicriteria optimization model, which allows the energy consumption and the link stability of mobile nodes to be taken into account simultaneously, is presented. In order to evaluate the validity of the proposed model, a greedy approach is devised. Some preliminary computational experiments have been carried out, in a simulation environment. The numerical results are very encouraging, showing the correctness of the proposed model. Indeed, the selection of a shorter route leads to a more stable route, but to a greater energy consumption. On the other hand, if longer routes are selected the route fragility is increased, but the average energy consumption is reduced.
