The paper proposes a QoS guaranteed on-demand routing protocol on the MANET, named an Energy-Aware Quality of Services Routing Protocol (EAQSRP). This protocol addresses how to find a feasible path to satisfy some QoS parameters such as delay, bandwidth and power consumption. Simulation results show our protocol provides better performances than other protocols, especially in end-to-end delay, throughput and packet loss
