Almost every node of a Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET) has to perform the function of a router. The lifetime of participating nodes affects the stability of the network. Recent MANET routing protocols are greedy on network lifetime because of battery power limitations. Although, these algorithms help to maintain the stability of the network, they are not as much cost effective as traditional existing routing algorithms. Our proposed method considers both the routing cost and network lifetime issues in route selection, which is a good compromise between these two conflicting interests. The simulation results show that the proposed scheme selects a path with less cost than a path in lifetime prediction based routing algorithms and results more stable network than cost-effective routing algorithms do.
