This paper proposes a new on-demand routing protocol. It aims to establish a redundant route path containing intermediate nodes having relatively more synchronized neighbor nodes in a possible route. This approach can localize the effects of route failures and reduce route reconfiguration time by enhancing the reachability to the destination node without source-initiated route re-discoveries at route failures. Simulation results show that it has better performance than AODV and TORA.
