A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a self-configuring network of mobile devices connected with wireless link. The topology of an ad hoc network changes due to the movement of mobile hosts. In MANETs, the data packet may fail to be delivered or a route is to be established again for various reasons including packet collision, nodes movement and bad channel conditions. The proposed research work intelligent route formation technique in ad hoc networks using node mobility behaviour (IRF-NMB) modifies ad hoc on demand distance vector (AODV) to improve its performance by selecting nodes in a route to destination on the basis of past mobile behavior of nodes. The mobility behavior of nodes in proposed method is modeled using random waypoint model. The performed simulation compares packet delivery ratio versus number of nodes, packet delivery ratio versus node max speed (m/s), end to end delay versus number of nodes, end to end delay node max speed (m/s) of stability routing base on reverse AODV (Hua and Li in International conference on ICCSNT, 2011) and IRF-NMB. Simulation result shows that our scheme improves the routing protocols.
