Device to device Communication is a very impressive method of communication as it does not need any pre exiting expensive communication infrastructure. Devices (nodes) themselves perform all the network operations such as routing. Such types of networks are very useful in areas where communication infrastructure is not available or it was destroyed by some kind of mistake. A mobile Ad-hoc network is a network of this class. In a MANET routing is done by nodes themselves and there are several methods available in the literature of routing. Reactive routing is a technique in which routes are recorded only if they are needed. AODV is most popular reactive routing protocol of mobile ad hoc network. In this paper we are presenting a novel concept of route selection “SMART” in which stochastic multi-criteria acceptability analysis method is used to find the best route for transmission of packet from source to destination. This acceptability method is a branch of multi-criteria decision method (MCDM), and it has flexibility to assign importance to different criteria and the same can be change according to the situation in which the network is being used. The proposed scheme is implemented on NS-2 Platform and compared with other noteworthy research papers for verification of improvement in performance.
