Abstract

The paper proposes and evaluates an improved genetic algorithm (GA) dedicated to the maximization of the bandwidth of a specified, previously discovered, route in a TDMA-based Mobile Ad Hoc networks (MANETs). The objective is also to increase the speed of convergence of the genetic algorithm by adequately choosing the genetic operators, as well as the crossover and mutation probabilities. Simulation results show that the proposed solution outperforms existing algorithms, with acceptable computational costs.
