Performance study of reactive routing protocol in wildfire detection using mobile ad-hoc network

Nadia Al-Aboody, Muhsin Al-Amery


The routing protocols play an important role in creating routes and sending packets between sensor nodes. There are many methods in the literature that presented and applied several protocols in various domains. However, there is a lack of using routing protocols in the detection of wildfire. Moreover, most methods have used a single number of sensor nodes, where there is a need to investigate the routing protocol based on different simulation parameters such as the number of sensor nodes. Therefore, in this paper, we propose a type of reactive routing protocol that is named Location Aided Routing (LAR). The simulation of LAR protocol has been conducted based on a various number of sensor nodes in order to deeply study and investigate the LAR protocol in the detection of wildfire. In addition, different performance metrics are used for evaluating the performance of the LAR protocol. In the simulation, the performance of LAR protocol shows promising results in the wildfire detection.
