The Mobile Ad hoc Network or popularly known as the MANET has been a prevalent concept in the past two or three decades or so.
This network formation strategy is arbitrary - initiated and maintained without the help of any other representative node or pre-existing network
configuration or hierarchy. Though in some protocols there may be an arrangement for some form of leaders, but the more distributed is the task
of routing among all the nodes, the better is the performance of the protocol. Reliable and Density-aware Routing Protocol for Mobile Ad Hoc
Networks with Novel Power Conservation Scheme is an expanded routing protocol that incorporates all aspects of mobile ad hoc networks,
including adaptability to network size and density and enhancing power-conservativeness of the system. The protocol utilizes a very unique
geographic forwarding scheme with the location information of the nodes involved from the Global Positioning System, GPS. The forwarding is
greedy and mostly depends upon reactive network formation strategy, reducing much of the complexity and overhead of proactive strategies. In
time when the system stabilizes, the protocol gradually builds up a locally stored but globally available reliability factor for each node which on
one hand allows the packets to avoid non-reachable zones and on the other hand distributes forwarding tasks to prevent bottlenecks. The protocol
also provides a very innovative means to minimize system’s overall power dissipation.
