Title : The Energy Aware Dynamic Source Routing Protocol

The energy aware dynamic source routing (EADSR) protocol is an
extension to the dynamic source routing (DSR) protocol for mobile ad
hoc networks. It retains the features and benefits of DSR while it
incorporates new features for energy limited nodes. The EADSR
features include (1) a DSR header option so that link power costs
can be passed with source routes; (2) an extended route discovery
protocol to find lower energy routes than minimum hop routes; and
(3) an additional route maintenance mechanism that allows the source
node to respond to link changes without route disruption. The
protocol is able to find routes with minimum total transmit power
cost. It is able to track changes in link power on a route, choose
between routes based on cost, and notify the source of new lower
cost routes as they become available. This document specifies the
EADSR header option and operation changes to DSR.

MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
