Abstract : A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) includes a collection of self-organizing mobile nodes without any fixed physical infrastructures. Most of the nodes are small in size with limited battery energy. The dynamic network topology, limited energy and bandwidth constrain make routing is a critical problem. An efficient routing protocol can ensure high performance by increasing network lifetime. To make the network more efficient the routing protocol should ensure maximum use of the network resources like limited residual energy, bandwidth, etc. In this paper, we propose a routing approach called Energy Efficient Routing Mechanism for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (EER), where a source node is capable of discovering an energy efficient route to its desired destination node. The propose EER mechanism enhances intelligence to mobile nodes and creates and fires fuzzy rules to develop a new route during the discovery phase. By taking into account, nodal energy and current queue status, our mechanism applies fuzzy based rules to develop the route which provides higher life longevity and improves network performance significantly. The performance result shows the EER mechanism outperforms the existing protocols which are simulated in Network Simulator-2(NS-2).
