A Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) is a network consisting of a set of mobile nodes capable of communicating with each other without base station. For Quality of Service (QoS) to be maintained, MANET must run consistently without power interruption. Also, the wireless network situation of MANET had made the QoS unpredictability less guaranteed and highly susceptible to errors.
MANETs are wireless networks that run usually on battery power. The power supplied by the battery is limited and tends to run out after a period of time. This poses a serious challenge for the nodes in MANETs. One major characteristic of the node is availability i.e., it should always be to receive and transmit communication to other nodes. If a node goes down, communication breaks down and the communication is disrupted. The availability of the nodes has an overall impact on the Quality of Service (QoS) that MANETs give. Once the nodes are not available when they are needed or if a node goes down while a communication is going on, thereby affecting the communication, the MANET is said to be unreliable, unpredictable and the QoS is said to be low tries to resolve the power challenge faced when using MANETs. The QoS of MANETs can only improve if the networks are working at their optimal capacity. This research would also cover current solutions for fixing the power problem and their effectiveness and also parts they are failing to address.
This research work proposed an energy efficient QoS enhancement scheme for mobile ad hoc network. The algorithm is inspired by particle swamp optimization technique with heuristic algorithm. QoS parameters that have been taken into consideration are throughput, delay, packet loss, and bandwidth utilisation.OPNET simulator has been used to evaluate the proposed concept.
Simulation results show that the packet increases from 20 to 1500 and the vehicular speed increases from 330v/h to 1300v/h. Hence, this result produces better result than the existing schemes.
The study concluded that three agents, namely message selection agent, message forwarding agent, and QoS factor calculating agent, have been introduced to govern and optimise the whole message transmission scheme. Through this method, a significant improvement in QoS factor can be achieved in comparison with the existing schemes.

1.1 Background to the Study
The Mobile Adhoc Network (MANET) is a new network type which caters for the needs of the changing networking needs. It is the adhoc network of mobile devices. It is infrastructure less. Such networks may operate themselves or may be connected to the larger internet. Each device in MANET is free to move in any direction. The devices are being equipped with a router and must thus be in a position to transfer data whenever essential. The connection is, of course, wireless and the network may also be with limited range like LAN instead of connecting to the internet. The protocols to be used in MANET may differ, depending upon the capabilities of the devices, packet drop rate and other factors. There are various types of mobile adhoc networks depending on the location of these devices and the way in which they are used. Some of the popular types are (Attia, 2015):
VANET (Vehicular Ad hoc Network): This is when the devices are used to communicate between vehicles. It may also be used for communication between vehicles and roadside equipment. It can be used to transfer between newly web enabled devices on the road. IMANET: stands for internet based MANET. These are mobile ad hoc networks which link to the gateway device for the internet.
Energy-efficient broadcasting has been an attractive area of research in Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs) characterized by high mobility and limited battery capacity. Probabilistic and counter-based broadcast methods are the proposed solutions suitable for high-mobility and secure MANET where the knowledge of the updated global/local topology is difficult or impossible to obtain.
In literature(Attia, 2016) several probabilistic and deterministic MANET broadcasting methods have been proposed:
1) Probabilistic methods do not require explicit neighbour information and comprise probability-based flooding, counter-based flooding, and area-based flooding. Probability-based flooding is similar to simple flooding except that nodes rebroadcast messages with probability p. Counter-based flooding exploits the fact that node local density is directed proportional to the number of received packets within a given interval. During a waiting delay, a node counts the number of times it receives the same message and then it decides if the message should be rebroadcasted. In area based flooding, each node selects its farther neighbour to retransmit broadcast messages. These kinds of methods are generally efficient but require the knowledge of the neighbour positions.
2) In deterministic methods, topological knowledge is obtained by periodically exchanging control messages among node’s neighbours. This approach and the type of exchanged information are generally scenario-dependent. Examples are clustering methods where nodes are grouped into small clusters each one managed by a particular node called cluster-head which has the task of retransmitting broadcast messages, geographic methods where forwarding decisions exploit the availability of accurate topological information such as distance, speed and direction of the neighbours, self-pruning methods where nodes use the history of encountered nodes before delivering messages.
MANET routing protocols based on the measure of the relative importance of a node within its cluster, named Network Centrality (NC), have been recently proposed in the literature. Although several works have explored the capacity of a node to receive and diffuse information based on different NC definition (e.g., degree, closeness, betweenness, and Eigenvector Centrality), they require complete knowledge of the network topology thus limiting the applicability of these protocols to fixed networks or to scenarios where the instant topology should be computed in a centralized fashion (Bai, 2003).
A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a self-configuring self-organizing network that does not require any infrastructure (Belding-Royer, 2012). Wireless nodes relay packets across the network making data transfer possible with other nodes. Quality of Service (QoS) is crucial in running a MANET. The Medium of Access Control (MAC) is an imperative condition for QoS provision. It is difficult to guarantee QoS in a MANET as it is a wireless network and like all other wireless networks, it is very unpredictable and highly susceptible to errors (Camp, 2011). Despite all this, it is possible to improve the QoS of a MANET through various techniques.
MANETs were initially created for disaster, emergencies and military use. But applications of MANETs for commercial ventures such as teleconferencing, home networking, embedded computing, electronic classrooms and so on are viable. Because the nodes used are mobile and there is no infrastructure used, power consumption is a major setback for MANETs. The main source of power for MANETs is battery power. The routing protocols in the network determine how much power will be consumed. Sending traffic in MANETs through the shortest path that uses minimum transmission energy and the nodes used have low residual power would maximize lifetimes of MANETs (Delgado, 2012).
Wireless Ad hoc network has no routers. Each node act as an intermediate node for other node and intermediate node forwards data towards destination node. An intermediate node is also a sender for other nodes and acts as a router in the network. For this network to run smoothly, an uninterrupted power supply needs to be available at all times. This is particularly difficult to maintain at any given time as power interruptions and outages never ceases. MANETS work through a transmission signal where source nodes connect to other nodes in the network. Power transmissions affect how long it will take for one node to sense and connect with another. Power transmission needs to be steady otherwise the signal strength will weaken and the range of transmission will decline (Farkas, 2016). This will in turn make users question or degrade the reliability of MANETs. Solving the power challenge is, therefore, paramount if we are to guarantee the QoS of MANETs.
Quality of Service(QoS) is crucial in running a MANET. The medium of access control (MAC) is an imperative condition for QoS provision. It is difficult to guarantee QoS in a MANET as it is a wireless network and like all other wireless networks, it is very unpredictable and highly susceptible to errors (Gerharz, 2013). Despite all this it is possible to improve the QoS of a MANET through various techniques.Solving the power challenge will not only make MANETs more reliable but will also improve the QoS in them. Improve power will mean better transmission in the network thus improving communication between nodes. Conserving power is crucial for the nodes due to the limited sources of energy for MANETs. Since battery power is what is used in MANETs, different levels of energy can disrupt communication activities thus reducing the efficiency of the network. Since the nodes do not work with a central station, depending on the activity taking place, each node may act as a router or host thus demanding more energy consumption (Han, 2010).
Wireless network can be deployed either in infrastructure mode or in Ad hoc mode. In an Infrastructure mode, mobile stations communicate with each other with the help of Base Station or Access Point (AP). It is similar to star topology of wired network. This Access Point makes communication easier between the nodes. In an Ad hoc mode there is no access point or base station that helps in communication between nodes. All nodes in wireless Ad hoc network directly communicate with each other in peer-to-peer fashion. The topology of wireless Ad hoc network is dynamic in nature therefore routes are changed frequently (Hong, 2009). Nodes in MANETs consume energy the power saving techniques in use are conserving power at mobile node, conserving power by use of power management technique, minimized power aware routing protocol and by controlling transmission power (Hong, 2014).
1.2 Statement of the Problem
A mobile ad hoc network is a network consisting of set of mobiles node capable of communicating with each other without base station. For Quality of Service (QoS) to be maintained, MANET must run consistently without power interruption. Also, the wireless network situation of MANET had made the QoS unpredictability less guaranteed and highly susceptible to errors.
MANETs are wireless networks that run usually on battery power. The power supplied by the battery is limited and tends to run out after a period of time. This poses a serious challenge for the nodes in MANETs. One major characteristic of the node is availability i.e., it should always be to receive and transmit communication to other nodes. If a node goes down, communication breaks down and the communication is disrupted. The availability of the nodes has an overall impact on the Quality of Service (QoS) that MANETs give. Once the nodes are not available when they are needed or if a node goes down while a communication is going on, thereby affecting the communication, the MANET is said to be unreliable, unpredictable and the QoS is said to be low.
Insufficient amount of power available to the nodes of the MANET makes it to be unreliable as it drain the routing models in the network medium. The major factors, which affect the data transmission of an Ad hoc network, are battery power, bandwidth, delay, speed, type of data and cost. The data transfer rates in a wireless Ad hoc network are not static but are dynamic. The availability of these resources at any node, either during data transmission or forwarding of data to other node is not certain. The resources available at any node are in scarce. Battery power is one of the major factors in a wireless Ad hoc network. A node can transmit data to a longer distance only if it has sufficient battery power. Area covered by a node in an Ad hoc network plays an important role during data transmission. Power constraints are constraints in a wireless network arise due to battery powered nodes which cannot be recharged on line. This becomes a bigger issue in mobile ad hoc networks as each node is acting as both an end system and a router at the same time, and for the purpose, additional energy is required to forward packets.
1.3 Objective of the Study
The main objective of this study is to conserve the battery life of mobile nodes by implementing one of the energy efficient techniques with the existing efficient routing protocols to increase life time of network and reduces network failure and energy. The specific objectives are:
Without power, any mobile device will become useless. Battery power is a limited resource, and it is expected that battery technology is not likely to progress as fast as computing and communication technologies do. Hence, how to lengthen the lifetime of batteries is an important issue, especially for MANET, which is all supported by batteries.
1.5 Research Questions
How can a new enhanced energy efficient routing protocol that is power aware
and efficient for MANETs be implemented?
How can the new protocol be compared with a hybrid protocol?
How can the developed algorithm be implemented?
The study is significant as it tries to resolve the power challenge faced when using MANETs. The QoS of MANETs can only improve if the networks are working at their optimal capacity. This research would also cover current solutions for fixing the power problem and their effectiveness and also parts they are failing to address.
The scope is on QoS of MANETs and how power challenges can be solved. It would cover the effects the power disruptions have on QoS of MANETs. It would also consider already existing solutions to the challenge including the pros and cons of these solutions. It covers how the different types of MANETs and how each is affected by power shortages and gives a comparison as to which type is most affected and which is least affected. It could cover possible improvements that can be made to MANETs to try improving their functionality in relation to being able to detect other nodes even on weak signals. It would also cover duration it takes to fix power disruptions and whether this duration can be minimized without compromising the rectifications being done. Artificial Bee Colony Optimisation (ABCO) technique would be used. In this proposed scheme, QoS parameters that have been taken into consideration are throughput, delay, packet loss, and bandwidth utilisation. Here, three agents, namely message selection agent, message forwarding agent, and QoS factor calculating agent, have been introduced to govern and optimise the whole message transmission scheme. Through this method, a significant improvement in QoS factor can be achieved in comparison with the existing schemes. OPNET simulator has been used to evaluate the proposed concept.
