.Routing in Ad hoc networks is a challenge due to mobility and thus is a current area of research.In context of Mobile Ad hoc networks (MANET) we can say that Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) is collection of multi-hop wireless mobile nodes that communicate with each other without centralized control or established infrastructure.The wireless links in this network are highly error prone and can go down frequently due to mobility of nodes, interference and less infrastructure.Considering the importance of reactive routing protocols, we have all protocols share similar on- demand behavior, but their internal mechanisms lead to significant difference in their performance of the protocols by various network load and mobility.In recent years, several routing protocols have been proposed for mobile ad hoc networks and prominent among them are DSR,AODV,TORA and RDMAR. This Project describes the Relative Distance Micro-discovery Ad Hoc Routing (RDMAR) protocol for use in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs).The protocol is highly adaptive,bandwidth-efficient and scaleable.A key concept in its design is that protocol reaction to link failures is typically localised to a very small region of the network near the change. This desirable behaviour is achieved through the use of a novel mechanism for route discovery,called Relative Distance Micro-discovery (RDM).The concept behind RDM is that a query flood can be localised by knowing the relative distance (RD) between two terminals.To accomplish this, every time a route search between the two terminals is triggered, an iterative algorithm calculates an estimate of their RD, given an average nodal mobility and information about the elapsed time since they last communicated and their previous RD.Based on the newly calculated RD, the query flood is then localised to a limited region of the network centred at the source node of the route discovery and with maximum propagation radius that equals to the estimated relative distance.This ability to localise query flooding into a limited area of the network serves to increase scalability and minimise routing overhead and overall network congestion.
It uses a distributed approach i. Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) Protocol: It is a classical routing protocol for MANETs that compromise the trade-off problems like large packet header in reactive source protocol and large messaging overhead due to periodic updates in proactive protocols.INTRODUCTION Proactive protocols: In this type of routing protocol. Distance vector (DV) protocol. Ad-hoc On Demand Routing (AODV) and Associativity Based Routing (ABR) protocols. 2 . Destination Sequenced Distance Vector (DSDV) protocol. it keeps track of the neighbor nodes only and it does not establish a series of paths to reach the destination. each node in a network discovers or maintains a route based on-demand. throughput of the network may be affected but it provides the actual information to the availability of the network. However.e. The main advantage is that this protocol needs less touting information but the disadvantages are that it produces huge control packets due to route discovery during topology changes which occurs frequently in MANETs and it incurs higher latency. It floods a control message by global broadcast during discovering a route and when route is discovered then bandwidth is used for data transmission. it incurs additional overhead cost due to maintaining up-to-date information and as a result. each node in a network maintains one or more routing tables which are updated regularly. The examples of this type of protocol are Dynamic Source Routing (DSR). Each node sends a broadcast message to the entire network if there is a change in the network topology. Wireless Routing protocol Fisheye State Routing (FSR) protocol are the examples of Proactive protocols. Reactive Protocols: In this type of routing protocol. It also uses route discovery and route maintenance mechanism like DSR.
Route Discovery: A source node send a broadcast message to its neighboring nodes if no route is available for the desired destination containing source address. destination sequence number.then it will send data through that new route. Forward pointers keep track of the intermediate nodes while message being forwarded to destination node. Time out message guarantees the deletion of link when there is no activity for a certain amount of time between source and the destination node. Two pointers such as forward pointer and backward pointer are used during route discovery. Route error message ensures that this message will be broadcasted to all nodes because when a node observes a failed link. that is. 3 . source sequence number. when route request message reached the destination node. Hello message ensures the forward and backward pointers from expiration.it creates a „Route Error‟ packet and sends it to the source node to indicate the failure of thelink. it then unicast the reply message to the source via the intermediate nodes and the backward pointer keeps track of the nodes.Then it tries to salvage the packet. then the node that tries to send data will detect a link break. The main disadvantage is that it needs huge bandwidth to keep maintain periodic hello message.it searches in its cache to find an alternate route to reach the destination. Main advantages are 1) it is an efficient algorithm for mobile ad-hoc networks and it is scalable 2) it takes short time for convergence and is a loop free protocol and 3) messaging overhead to announce the link failure is less compared DSR.which moved and then forward the packet.When forwarding the route error packet. the source node also removes the entries corresponding to the node and tries to find another route to the destination in its cache. broadcast ID and hop count. After selecting the route between the source and the destination and during data transmission. hello message and time out message.Otherwise. The major feature of AODV that distinguish it from DSR is the destination sequence number which is used to verify the up-to-date path to the destination. it will propagate this message to its upstream nodes towards source node only.if any node participating in the route moves. Eventually. Route Maintenance: Three types of messages exchanged between source and destination such as route error message.If there is any route.On receiving the error packet. destination address.the intermediate nodes remove the cache entries corresponding to the node.
A key concept in its design is that protocol reaction to link failures is typically localized to a very small region of the network near the change. Source starts collecting the request until the timeexpires. The concept behind RDM is that a query flood can be localized by knowing the relative distance (RD) between two terminals.Then it checks the reply to find out any repeated next hop. an iterative algorithm calculates an estimate of their RD. If it is. This desirable behavior is achieved through the use of a novel mechanism for route discovery.The Relative Distance Micro-discovery Ad hoc Routing (RDMAR) protocol is designed for operation in mobile ad hoc networks [MANET].otherwise select randomly from the collected route replies and use that route to transmit the data.given an average nodal mobility and information about the elapsed time since they last communicated and their previous RD. otherwise select randomly from the collected route replies and use that route totransmit the data.the data packets that are to be transmitted are stored in a buffer.In mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs).To accomplish this.Till that time.Till that time.This protocol is highly adaptive.before retransmitting the request again.the query flood is then localized to a limited region of the network centered at the source node of the route discovery and with maximum propagation radius that equals to the estimated relative distance.Route Reply in the Proposed AODV: After broadcasting the route request.the data packets that are to be transmitted are stored in a buffer.select any one of the repeated next hop paths.If it is.Based on the newly calculated RD.This ability to localize query flooding into a limited area of the network serves to increase scalability and minimize routing overhead and overall network congestion.Till that time. bandwidth-efficient and scalable.the source node waits for reply some amount of time.the source node waits for reply some amount of time.select any one of the repeated next hop paths. called Relative Distance Micro-discovery (RDM).forward routing of the packets is required.After broadcasting the route request. thus. select any one of the repeated next hop paths. the network‟s wireless topology may change rapidly and unpredictably. nodes are acting also as routers (also called Mobile 4 . In many packetradio networks the packet radios do not have direct radio links to all other packet radios in the network and thus store-and. Therefore. Source starts collecting the request until the time expires.before retransmitting the request again. Then it checks the reply to find out any repeated next hop. the source node waits for reply some amount of time.otherwise select randomly from the collected route replies and use that route to transmit the data. nodes are free to move around randomly and organize themselves arbitrarily.the data packets that are to be transmitted are stored in a buffer.Source starts collecting the request until the time expires.If it is.Then it checks the reply to find out any repeated next hop. before retransmitting the request again.every time a route search between the two terminals is triggered.After broadcasting the route request. RELATIVE DISTANCE MICRO DISCOVERY AD-HOC ROUTING PROTOCOL : Brief Description : The Relative Distance Microdiscovery Ad Hoc Routing (RDMAR) protocol is used in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs).
a "RT_Timeout" field which records the remaining amount of time before the route is considered invalid. and the number of hops to each.then RDM is to be applied to localize the repair of the failed route on the region of the network where the failure occurs. A routing table may contain entries that are not active. the routing table of each node is a column vector of maximum (N . Packet .Each routing table lists all available destinations. According to this mechanism.Tafazolli Expires 13 March 2000 RDMAR is a source-initiated on-demand routing protocol and allows nodes to maintain routes to destinations that are in active communication. the "Time_Last_Update" (TLU) field that indicates the time elapsed since the node last received routing information for D.This is achieved by estimating the relative distance between the source and destination of the route search.1) row entries.Apart from the available destination addresses. "MUST NOT".One distinguishing feature of RDMAR is its use of an optimized route discovery mechanism.b)the node proceeds and informs the calling node about the failure to deliver the call through this path.two heuristics are considered: a) if its relative distance from the called node is smaller or equal to this from the calling node.A routing table entry with an unexpired Lifetime and a finite metric. "MAY".An IP header plus payload.. "RECOMMENDED".thus restricting the range of route discovery within an area centered at the source node of the route discovery and with maximum radius that equals to the estimated relative distance.Routers) and dynamically establishing routing patterns among themselves to form an infrastructure-less network.In RDMAR. Active Route . called Relative Distance Micro-discovery (RDM). RDMAR Terminology : Node .Thus. Protocol Overview .paths that carry active calls) is a distributed operation that exploits the spatial relationship of nodes when a failure along an active route occurs. "SHOULD". in contrast to pure flooding mechanism where a route query would reach every node that is reachable in the wireless network.A communication facility or medium over which nodes can communicate at the link layer. "SHOULD NOT".e.Therefore. Depending on the relative distance of the node that reports the failure from the calling and called nodes.where N is the set of participating nodes in the network.Only active entries can be used to forward data packets. This includes: the "Default Router" field that indicates the next hop node through which the current node can reach D.A device in the ad hoc network willing to participate in the routing protocol. if the network topology has changed such that it can no longer use this route.such as an Ethernet (simple or bridged). Route Discovery -The mechanism in RDMAR where a node S discovers a route to some node D when one is needed.while using a route.in RDMAR a query is propagated only to a limited region of the network for the successful discovery of the destination terminal. "SHALL NOT". otherwise. Aggelou. and "OPTIONAL" which are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 [RFC].additional information is maintained for each destination address D."SHALL". the routing protocol limits the range of route searching in order to save the cost of flooding a route request message into the entire wireless are.calls are routed between the stations of the network by using routing tables which are stored at each station of the network. "REQUIRED". A link is the layer immediately below IP. and a "Route Flag" field which declares 5 . Another feature of RDMAR is that the maintenance of active paths (i. Route Maintenance The mechanism in RDMAR whereby a node is able to detect. the "RD" field which shows an estimate of the relative distance (RD) (in hops) between the node and D. Specification Language – This protocol specification uses conventional capitalized keywords such as "MUST". each node is treated as a host as well as a store-and-forward node. Link .
If so.the node buffers the packet and attempts to discover one using the Route Discovery procedure.When a source node S wishes to send a data packet to some destination D.if the source. of the data packet does not have a route to destination (either because S did not have previous information for the destination node. it keeps a copy of the packet in its Data Re-transmission table and then proceeds and transmits the packet over its network interface to the next hop identified in its routing table. D.Route Replies (RREPs). Packet Formats : Route Requests (RREQs). it starts the Route Maintenance Phase.Each intermediate node (IN) upon reception of a data packet. Each mobile node maintains two data structures. first acknowledges (link-level acknowledgement) its correct reception to the previous hop. wherein all routing and management information. If an IN is unable to forward the packet. in addition to the routing table. These messages carry all the control information needed for the correct operation of RDMAR. it first examines if it has a route to this destination.whether the route to D is active. S.On the other hand. and forwards it to the next hop. and FN (Failure Notification) are the three message types defined by RDMAR. or because S had a valid route for D but the lifetime associated with this route expired and hence erased from its Routing Table). namely these are: the Data Retransmission Table and the Route Request Table. 6 . if a path to destination is available. therefore. The Data Re-transmission Buffer.is kept. learned during protocol operation. is a queue of data packets that are awaiting the receipt of an explicit acknowledgement from their destination.
RDMAR comprises of two main algorithms: • Route Discovery . and “adjusts” the result onto their previous relative distance (RDM_Radius). upon reception of a data packet. Let us designate this time as tmotion. i. If node i is unable to forward the packet because there is no route available or a forwarding error occurs along the data path as a result of a link or node failure.i has two options. up to a maximum number of retries. Each routing table lists all reachable destinations. the “RD” field which shows an estimate of the relative distance (in hops) between the node and i. In the latter case.An intermediate node i. RDMAR. a “RT_Timeout” field which records the remaining amount of time before the route is considered invalid. wherein for each destination i. refers to its routing table in order to retrieve information on its previous relative distance with j and the time elapsed since i last received routing information for j. node i initiates a Route Discovery procedure.Algorithm : In RDMAR. each node is treated as a host as well as a store-and-forward node. • Route Maintenance . Micro_Range. node i calculates the distance offset of DST (DST_Offset) during tmotion.When an incoming call arrives at node i for destination node j and there is no route available. does not assume bi-directional links but in contrast nodes exercise the possibility of having bi-directional links.i initiates a route discovery phase. node i is then able to estimate its new relative distance to destination node j in terms of actual number of hops. the ”Time_Last_Update” (TLU) field that indicates the time since the node last received routing information for i. or instead. therefore. This includes: the “Default Router” field that indicates the next hop node through which the current node can reach i. i may attempt a number of additional retransmissions of the same data packet. nodes that forward a data packet will always have routing information to send the future acknowledgement back to the source.node i sends an explicit message to examine whether a bi-directional link can be established with the previous node.However.either to flood the network with a route query in which case the route query packets are broadcast into the whole network. if some kind of location prediction model for j can be established.first processes the routing header and then forwards the packet to the next hop. additional routing information is also maintained. To accomplish this. In addition. Based on this information and assuming a moderate velocity. Micro_Velocity. calls are routed between the stations of the network by using routing tables which are stored at each station of the network. and a moderate transmission range. and a “Route Flag” field which declares whether the route to i is active. to limit the discovery in a smaller region of the network. In this way. 7 .The former case is straightforward. Here. the source of the route discovery. if the failure persists.
