In a mobile ad hoc network (MANET), to determine delay-guarantee routes is difficult due to the common radio channel shared among neighboring hosts, and it is necessary for quality-of-service (QoS) routing services in MANETs. However, previously proposed QoS routing protocols do not take the bandwidth consumed by the hosts that are two hops’ distant from the determined routes. Thus, the delay violation problem occurs and the delay requirement of the services cannot be met. In the paper, a novel algorithm will be proposed to address the problem for constructing delay-sensitive routes for meeting the delay requirements of QoS applications.
