A Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET) is a collection of wireless mobile nodes forming a temporary network without using any centralized access point, infrastructure, or centralized administration. The proposed Adaptive Energy-efficient On-demand Distance Vector routing (AEODV) Protocol for MANETs that is based on the Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV). The AEODV makes significant reduction in the energy consumption of the mobile nodes batteries for large no of connections. The balanced energy consumption is done by SARSA Reinforcement learning. At route discovery due to link breakage route is maintained using available backup routes instead of flooding control packets to the whole network area. It saves significant amount of energy which is consumed by rebroadcasting. To show the efficiency of the proposed protocol, it simulated using QualNet. Simulation results show that the AEODV protocol makes an improvement in delay, throughput, total packets received and residual energy compared to AODV and SARSA.
