The energy consumption plays a key role in mobile ad hoc networks in a day-to-day life. Mobile ad hoc network (MANET) structure is a temporary network organized dynamically with a possible family of wireless mobiles independent of any extra infrastructural facilities and central administration requirements. In addition, it provides the solution to overcome the minimal energy consumption issues. Nodes are battery-operated temporarily does not operated on permanent batteries, so energy consumed by a battery depends on the lifetime of the battery and its energy utilization dynamically decreases as the nodes change their position in MANETs. Multipath routing algorithm in MANETs provides the best optimal solution to transmit the information in multiple paths to minimize the end-to-end delay, increases energy efficiency and moderately enhances the lifetime of a network. The research mainly focused on minimum energy consumption techniques in MANET is of a great challenge in industries. In this paper, the author highlights a novel algorithmic approach ad hoc on-demand multipath distance vector (AOMDV) routing protocol to increases the energy efficiency in MANET by incorporating the demand multipath distance and fitness function. The ad hoc on-demand multipath distance vector-fitness function (AOMDV-FF) routing protocol short out minimum distance path that consumes minimum energy and the simulation performance is evaluated using network simulator-2 (NS2) tool. Two protocols are proposed in this work AOMDV and AOMDV-FF and compared some of the performance parameters, like energy efficiency, network lifetime and routing overhead in terms of data transfer rate, data packet size and simulation time, etc. The overall simulation results of the proposed AOMDV-FF method is to be considered as a network with 49 nodes and the network performance factor end-to-end delay 14.4358 ms, energy consumption 18.3673 joules, packet delivery ratio 0.9911 and routing overhead ratio 4.68 are evaluated. The results show an enriched performance as compared to AOMDV and AOMR-LM methods.
