Abstract: Due to the advancement of technology and the increased utilization of mobile sensors, Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANET) has attracted the research attention of numerous researchers. Irrespective of the numerous advantages shown by MANET, there are several challenges confronted by it due to its mobility, unstable topology, energy efficiency and so on. Out of all the challenges, energy efficiency is the most crucial challenges being faced by MANET. The main reason for increased energy consumption of sensors in MANET is the mobility. Taking this challenge into account, this work intends to present an energy efficient routing solution for MANET that is based on the concept of trust and lion optimization algorithm. The lion optimization is a bio-inspired algorithm that helps in detecting the best possible route for the data transmission. The performance of the proposed approach is evaluated and compared against the existing approaches in terms of packet delivery rate, latency analysis, energy consumption and network lifetime.
Keywords: MANET, Energy Efficiency, Routing, Lifetime Enhancement.
