Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANET)

PROJECT-1: MINIMIZING MALICIOUS BEHAVIOR OFMOBILE NODES IN MANET

The primary objective of this research project is to reduce the malicious behavior of mobiles nodes in MANET. To achieve this objective, we have proposed a new scheme, Reputation-Trust (RT) System, which can be used to stabilize the performance of network even in the presence of large number of malicious nodes. Specifically, we introduced two extensions to the Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) protocol to mitigate the effects of routing misbehavior. We are currently working on the simulation and numerical analysis of the proposed RT system. Our simulation will cover different network scenarios with varying network performance parameters such as packets size, latency, and the average bandwidth.

PROJECT-2: CAPACITY ANALYSIS OF MANET

The primary objective of this project is to develop an efficient algorithm that can be used to analyze the best and worst cast capacities of a MANET. The capacity of MANET is typically determined by the size of network, routing protocol, mobility and the interactions that occur between the mobile nodes. Moreover, these critical parameters cause the loss rate that has severed impact on the performance of the MANET. Therefore, one of the main objectives of this research project is to develop an analytical model that incorporates most of the critical parameters that can influence the capacity of MANET. In addition, in this research project, based on the algorithm and the analytical model, we will design and implement the simulation to approximate both the best and worst case capacities of MANET with the consideration of relaying and non-relaying nodes.
