The conventional routing protocols in mobile ad hoc network (MANET) using conventionally a common transmission power for both tranmsission and overheads to transfer the data packet from the source to the destination node have been revisted. Hence, an technique was developed to establish an algorithm(Adaptive-Transmission-Power Ad Hoc On-Demand Distance Vector (ATP-ADOV) routing protocol - to control the transmission of power dynamically and overheads in MANET. The proposed ATP-ADOV reduced the energy consumption in the networks and improved the lifetime of the particiapting mobile nodes as well as that of the lifespan of the networks.
