A Friend Mechanism for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

A Friend Mechanism for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
: In the autonomous environment of mobile ad hoc network (MANET) where nodes are free to move around and depend on each other to initiate communication, cooperation among nodes is an essential component of a successful data transmission process. Since there is no central controller such as router to determine the communication paths in MANET, each node in the ad hoc network has to rely on each other in order to forward packets, thus highly cooperative nodes are required to ensure that the initiated data transmission process does not fail. However, it is hard to encourage cooperativeness among nodes for each node owns limited resources that need to be preserved. These particular nodes which are also known as selfish nodes refuse to help other nodes in forwarding packets due to the anxiety of having resource degradation such as exhausted battery power and limited processor capability. This problem has aroused several issues in MANET: routing, security, Quality of Service (QoS), resource ...
