A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is dynamic in nature and is composed of wirelessly connected nodes that perform hop-by-hop routing without the help of any fixed infrastructure. A Mobile Ad hoc Networks shortly called as MANET simply consists of a set of wireless mobile nodes that can quickly organize into a network, without the need for an infrastructure and start communicating using their wireless links. The nodes randomly move in a given region; as a result, the network topology keeps on changing. These ad hoc networks have found numerous applications in civil and military domains. The main requirements of a Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) is the efficiency of energy. Energy efficiency increases the lifetime of the network. In this research, inter-cluster and intra-cluster traffic is maintained by the cluster-head mobile nodes. The research takes into consideration the velocity of the mobile nodes, transmission range and battery power consumption of the mobile nodes. These solutions are achieved through the proposed routing. Simulations are performed using NS-2. The comparison is to be made between the proposed algorithm in the research and Weighted Clustering Algorithm (WCA).
