Ad hoc Networks are dynamic in nature and used to communicate in a region   where infrastructure cannot be used and are deployed in remote and left untouched areas.  These       networks consist of sensor nodes with some constraints like low energy, less memory, computation power, and communication range. The power utilization rate at each node must be uniformly distributed, and the overall power for connection request should be minimized, to maximize the lifetime of mobile ad hoc networks. The focus of this paper is to give a comprehensive assessment of energy-efficient routing protocols using Ns2 simulator.
