Abstract

This paper proposes an algorithm that enables mobile nodes to implement self-regulated movements in mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs). It is important for mobile nodes to maintain a certain level of network-based stability by harmonizing these nodes' movements autonomously due to their limited transmission range and dynamic topology. Entropy methods based on relative position are suggested, as a means for mobile nodes to regulate their local movements. Simulations show that an early warning mechanism is suitable to maintain movement-based stability. Isolation can be reduced by 99%, with an increased network cost of 12% higher power consumption, using the proposed algorithm.
