Since mobile ad-hoc networks have certain constraints, including power shortages, an unstable wireless environment, and node mobility, more power-efficient and reliable routing protocols are needed. Accordingly, this paper propose a new routing protocol, PERRA (Power Efficient Reliable Routing protocol for mobile Ad-hoc networks), that includes the advantages of on-demand protocols, while also providing power- efficient and reliable packet transmission. PERRA uses a new cost function to select the optimum path based on considering the minimum residual energy of the nodes on a path, the total energy consumed by a path to transmit and process a packet, and the path's stability in accordance with the node mobility. As a result, the proposed method increases the power efficiency, decreases the route-reconstructions due to residual power shortages and node mobility, and provides effective route maintenance mechanisms. The performance of PERRA is evaluated by simulations under various conditions.
