A study of AODV and DSR protocols: A meta-analysis of AODV and DSR protocols
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
There is a big number of people dying every year from car accidents and not solving this problem is a big issue. Communication protocols have been created in mobile ad-hoc network (MANET) to be able to solve this issue. AODV and DSR are two protocols that are used in this communication. The fact that there is mobile nodes makes it hard to keep track of the efficiency of this communication. This study has for objective giving a better understanding as to which protocol performs better and answering four important questions to know to be able to evaluate what protocol is better according to those parameters or criteria. The implemented method to solve this problem is through a meta-analysis and this meta-analysis is done through a qualitative research, literature review for critical literature reading and data collection to select the appropriate studies and exclud- ing the irrelevant studies based on other criteria. The evaluation of these param- eters are based on others’ work and reading the work from critical eyes. This study compares AODV and DSR from the criteria that are chosen. The study has a critical analysis of the results collected through the different papers show that AODV has outperformed DSR in most of the cases and answering the proposed questions in the study. Finally concluding that AODV is more effective in the case of high congestion compared to DSR but making a bit hard to have a clear cut answer when it comes to the criteria but AODV performed better in all the cases in high congestion.
