CEERA: Improved Clustring Based Energy Efficient Routing Algorithm for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

Amit Pratap, Surendra Pal Singh, Prashant Kumar Pandey


Ubiquitous smart devices with embedded sensors are paving the way for mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) that enable users to communicate directly, thereby playing a key role in Smart City and Internet of Things applications. In such smart environments, people with smart devices (nodes) can freely self-organize and form self-configuring MANETs to send and forward data packets to a destination over multiple hops via intermediate nodes. However, the energy consumption during routing remains a challenge in such ensemble mobile environments due to the limited battery capacity of mobile devices. Thus the effectiveness of MANET not only depends on control protocols but also on management of network topology and energy administration. Clustering in MANET is useful to make network more manageable. Many clustering protocols and algorithms are proposed to make network more stable and trusted. In this paper we depict the most prominent factor related to the MANET. The motive of this paper is to perform investigational study  including: routing structure, storage method, overhead, cryptographic authentication and misbehavior of nodes to clearly address  relevant problem in cluster based routing protocol and provide a suitable solution by proposing a energy efficient clustering algorithm named as clustering based energy efficient routing algorithm (CEERA).
