Battery Power Management Routing Considering Participation Duration for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

Masaru Yoshimachi and Yoshifumi Manabe

Abstract—We propose a new routing protocol BPMR (Battery Power Management Routing) for MANET (Mobile Ad Hoc NETwork). This protocol maintains high availability of network nodes. The duration time of participating to a MANET differs among nodes. Each node must work as a relay node during the participation and consume its battery. It is not fair that the nodes participating to the MANET for a long time relay many packets and the ones participating for a short period relay few packets. MANET protocols should reduce the relay burden to the nodes that have contributed to the MANET for a long time. MBCR (Minimum Battery Cost Routing) was proposed for MANET, in which the route selection considers each node’s remaining battery in order to improve the availability of MANET. In order to improve the availability, the nodes must not fall out early because of the battery exhaust. We propose BPMR which considers both of the participation duration and the remaining battery for the path selection. BPMR achieves fairness among nodes and high availability. The total remaining battery capacity by BPMR is superior to the one by MBCR. We show the effectiveness of BPMR by network simulations.

Index Terms—Battery consumption, fairness, MANET, MBCR, participation duration, routing protocol.
