This paper presents a new routing strategy for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks, called Dynamic Zone-based Topology Routing protocol (DZTR). We introduce new strategies to maintain up-to-date intrazone and interzone topology information at each node. We also propose a GPS-based location tracking mechanism, which reduces route discovery area and the number of nodes queried to find the required destination. Our routing strategy has been designed to work with dynamic zone, which contains a set of member nodes. Every node outside a zone is called a single-state node. We perform theoretical performance analysis, which shows that our network topology creation process has significantly fewer overheads than flooding approaches.
