|Abstract||Devices in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs) are mostly powered by battery. Since the battery capacity is fixed, some techniques to save energy at the device level or at the protocol stack should be applied to enhance the MANETs lifetime. In this thesis, we have proposed a few energy saving approaches at the network layer, and MAC layer. First, we proposed a routing technique, to which the following metrics are built into: (i) node lifetime, (ii) maximum limit on the number of connections to a destination, and (iii) variable transmission power. In this technique, we consider a new cost metric which takes into account the residual battery power and energy consumption rate in computing the lifetime of a node. To minimize the overutilization of a node, an upper bound is set on the number of connections that can be established to a destination. The proposed technique is compared with AODV  and LER . It outperforms AODV and LER in terms of network lifetime. Next, a technique called Location Based Topology Control with Sleep Scheduling (LBTC) is proposed. It uses the feature of both topology control approach in which the transmission power of a node is reduced, and power management approach in which nodes are put to sleep state. In LBTC the transmission power of a node is determined from the neighborhood location information. A node goes to sleep state only when: (i) it has no traffic to participate, and (ii) its absence does not create a local partition. LBTC is compared with LFTC  and ANTC . We observed that the network lifetime in LBTC is substantially enhanced. A framework for post-disaster communication using wireless ad hoc networks is proposed. This framework includes: (i) a multi-channel MAC protocol, (ii) a node-disjoint multipath routing, and (iii) a distributed topology aware scheme. Multi-channel MAC protocol minimizes the congestion in the network by transmitting data through multiple channels. Multipath routing overcomes the higher energy depletion rate at nodes associated with shortest path routing. Topology aware scheme minimizes the maximum power used at node level. Above proposals, taken together intend to increase the network throughput, reduce the end-to-end delay, and enhance the network lifetime of an ad hoc network deployed for disaster response.|

|Learning Resource Type||Thesis|
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading Indian languages. It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. The pilot project is devising a framework that is being scaled up with respect to content volume and diversity to serve all levels and disciplines of learners. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDL India is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with respective organization from where the contents are sourced and NDL India has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDL India portal up and running smoothly. However, NDL India takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the portal being unavailable due to technical issues or otherwise.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project.
