In the near future, computing environment can be expected based on the recent progresses and advances in the computing and communication technologies. Next generation of mobile communications will include both prestigious infrastructure wireless networks and novel infrastructure less mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). Power heterogeneity is common in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). With high power nodes, MANETs can improve network scalability, connectivity and broadcasting robustness. However, the throughput of power heterogeneous MANETs could be severely impacted by high-power nodes. In 802.11 based power heterogeneous MANETs, mobile nodes have different transmission power, and power heterogeneity becomes a double-edged sword. On one hand, the benefits of high-power nodes are the expansion of network coverage area and the reduction in the transmission delay. The proposed system considers the power aware routing protocol for a MANET formed of heterogeneous nodes. The proposed approach takes into consideration the battery status of nodes when building the routing table. The developed routing scheme is to optimize packet forwarding by avoiding data packet forwarding through high-power nodes. Due to high mobility of nodes in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), there exist frequent link breakages which lead to frequent path failures and route discoveries. A neighbour coverage-based probabilistic rebroadcast protocol is used for reducing routing overhead in MANETs. This approach combines the advantages of the neighbour coverage knowledge and the probabilistic mechanism, which can significantly decrease the number of retransmissions so as to reduce the routing overhead, and can also improve the routing performance.
