The recent area of mobile computing has become more important following the recent widespread drive towards mobile and adhoc networks, wireless sensor networks and vehicular ad hoc networks tracking technologies and their Applications. The availability of high bandwidth 3G infrastructure and the pervasive deployment of low cost Wi-Fi infrastructure around the world serve to accelerate the development of Mobile Computing. Mobile routing protocols are attracting the attention of research community. One of the major challenges facing mobile ad-hoc networks is the absence of a proper routing protocol that may provide good quality of service. Mobile ad hoc networking technologies have increasingly been applied to both military and civilian applications, and the requirements of providing better services in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are growing, accordingly. However, the nature of MANET, which are highly dynamic topologies, raise many challenges in developing efficient, reliable and scalable routing protocols for MANETs. In the MANET, cooperation between the nodes is required to route multi-hop messages from the source to destination due to the limited transmission range of each node.
