Reliable one-hop broadcasting is essential for numerous routing and broadcasting protocols in Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANET). However, collisions make this reliability impossible to achieve. Several algorithms have been proposed to reduce the number of collisions, but are too complex for practical applications. We have looked into power aware routing protocols for MANET where mobile nodes can alter their transmission range to increase longevity. Our proposed idea uses this power saving feature to provide a simpler solution to reduce the number of collisions in one-hop broadcasting.
