The paper proposes an optimized and energy-efficient Ad Hoc On-Demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol for Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) based on dynamic forwarding probability, in which the Route Request (RREQ) packets are randomly controlled to increase the network lifetime and reduce packet loss in the flooding algorithm. The results are assessed using various network performance factors after implementing and integrating them into Network Simulator (NS2). According to the simulation findings, the proposed technique effectively reduced RREQ propagation messages. It is more efficient, has a longer network lifetime, and uniformly utilizes nodal residual energy, enhancing network throughput and minimizing routing overhead when compared to regular and modified AODV protocols.


Using a wireless computer network, businesses can avoid the costly process of laying cables in buildings or as a connection between several equipment sites. Radio waves, which are implemented at the physical level of network structure, are the cornerstone of wireless systems. Wireless networks use radio waves to connect devices like laptops to the Internet, a company's network, and applications. When laptops connect to public Wi-Fi hotspots, they are connected to the business's wireless network (Techopedia Inc., 2017). Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) consists of a set of mobile nodes (hosts) that are connected by wireless links. The network topology (the physical connectivity of the communication network) in such a network may keep changing randomly. Routing protocols that find a path to be followed by data packets from a source node to a destination node used in traditional wired networks cannot be
