Abstract: Energy aware routing in mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) is the major problem to finding energy efficient routes that maximize the network lifetime without the knowledge energy status of nodes in network. To improve network performance, the paths for message flows are chosen in such a way that the total energy consumed along the path be minimized while avoiding energy-depleted nodes. Finding paths that consume minimum energy and finding paths that do not use energy-depleted nodes lead to conflicting objectives. In this paper, we propose an energy aware routing technique that selects the MAX energy holding nodes and calculate the average of nodes energy and if the path has maximum energy then in that case, the maximum average energy path is selected for sending data in network. This proposed method always utilizes the maximum energy nodes and for reliable connection it is essential in network. A simulation based performance comparison between a normal energy based routing ad hoc protocol and its modified proposed energy based protocol are done by ns-2 simulator and the simulation results are showing the better results of network performance and energy utilization.
