A mobile ad hoc network is an infrastructure less network, where nodes are free to move independently in any
direction. The nodes have limited battery power; hence we require energy-efficient route discovery techniques to enhance
node lifetime and network performance. In this paper, we propose an energy efficient route discovery (EERD) scheme that
greatly reduces the number of route-requests flooded in the network by controlling their time-to-live attribute. This, in turn,
improves the data packet delivery ratio of the underlying routing protocol and reduces the delay in discovering a suitable
route to the destination. Also the average node lifetime increases because of reduced message cost.

The concept of energy-efficient route discovery presented
in this paper greatly reduce message overhead of the
network. As a result, data packet delivery ratio increases
along with the lifetime of network nodes. Maximum
benefit can be obtained if the source node knows about a
recent location of the destination which is very much
possible from the point of view of ad hoc networks.
