A Novel Clustering Approach for Manets Based on Mobility


In recent years, many studies have been conducted in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks field in order to make a virtual infrastructure consisting of nodes. The common goal of all was to select a node called cluster-head which guarantees relationships between nodes. In this paper, we have presented a new clustering algorithm in Mobile Ad Hoc Network based on nodes weight. For calculating node weight we present four new parameter, congestion, stability, number of nodes moving towards a node and battery remaining. The goal of this algorithm is to decrease the number of cluster forming, maintain stable clustering structure and maximize lifespan of mobile nodes in the system. In simulation, the proposed algorithm has been compared with WCA, MOBIC and the Lowest_ID algorithm. The results of simulation reveal that the proposed algorithm achieves the goals.
