TBOR: Tree Based Opportunistic Routing for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

Authors: S. Balaji, E. Golden Julie, Y. Harold Robinson, M. Rajaram


A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a wireless communication network where nodes that are not within direct transmission range establish their communication via the help of other nodes to forward data. Routing protocols in MANETs are usually categorized as proactive. Tree Based Opportunistic Routing (TBOR) finds a multipath link based on maximum probability of the throughput. The simulation results show that the presented method is performed very well compared to the existing methods in terms of throughput, delay and routing overhead.

Keywords: Mobile Ad Hoc Networks, opportunistic data forwarding, proactive Source routing, BFS
