We propose and analyze an energy-aware traffic-adaptive routing strategy for large-scale mobile ad hoc networks. Referred to as Energy-Aware GEolocation-aided Routing (EAGER), this protocol optimally blends proactive and reactive strategies for energy efficiency. Specifically, EAGER partitions the network into cells and performs intra-cell proactive routing and inter-cell reactive routing. The cell size and transmission range are optimized analytically. By adjoining cells around hot spots and hot routes in the network, EAGER is capable of handling time-varying and spatially heterogeneous traffic conditions.
