Abstract

For nodes of mobile ad hoc networks, energy is a scarce resource that can be quickly depleted by communications. Moreover, due to the nature of wireless communication medium, nodes can waste a substantial amount of energy by overhearing packets in their neighborhood, most of which may not be meant for them. The overall impact of over-hearing is not well-studied: many of the schemes claiming to be energy-efficient neglect this cost by only focusing on energy costs due to local traffic. In this paper, we propose that nodes exploit overheard packets to gather awareness of current neighboring flows and adapt their local routing dynamically. By combining this awareness with battery-aware routing metrics, which includes the battery levels of the neighbors, we introduce various routing schemes that increase the network lifetime.
