Original Research


The performance of routing protocols determines the performance of MANET, and the development and improvement of routing protocols have been the hotspot of MANET research. DSR, as one of the IETF standardized routing protocol, which can be applied to large-scale scenario of fast-moving nods, is of high value of improvement. Based on the DSR, the stability of the link is estimated by using Continuous Hopfield Neural Network to find the route with the highest stability from the source node to the destination node to improve the performance of the DSR and improve the performance of the MANET. The simulation results show that compared with DSR and CHNN-DSR, CHNN-DSR has better performance in packet delivery performance, such as packet delivery ratio, average end-to-end delay and so on.
