Abstract—In recent years, research on advancing performance of mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs) has attracted a special attention of scientists around the world. In a dynamic network environment like MANET, routing protocols play a particularly important role in improving the overall network performance. In essence, each routing protocol may use a combined routing metrics to select the intended route(s) for data transmission. This means that routing metrics will influence the design of routing protocols for MANETs. Therefore, we investigate on routing metrics and protocols proposed for MANETs. Our main focus will be on proposals aimed at high achievable network performance and energy efficiency. In this paper, we summarize our findings and propose future research directions.
Index Terms—MANET, metric, routing, protocol, high performance, energy efficiency.
