    Abstract

    Recently, the proliferation of the smart mobile devices with embedded sensors, computing resources, and wireless technologies have enabled mobile ad hoc networks(MANETs) to play a key role for the emergence of the concept of 'Smart City'. However, the mobile node's battery has limited capacity and represents a constraint for MANETs. Constructing a power aware and efficient routes has received a great attention from researchers as a significant issue to maximize the network lifetime. In this context, this paper proposes a Multipath Battery Aware routing protocol namely: MBA-OLSR which is based on Multipath Optimized Link State Routing Protocol (MP-OLSR). To improve energy efficiency during routing, the MBA-OLSR considers the residual battery of the mobile node as a metric to find the initial cost of the multiple links. The proposed MBA-OLSR provides a major enhancement in node lifetime, and QoS metrics against variation in simulation time in different simulation models.
