In this paper, we propose an energy-balanced cross-layer multi-path routing algorithm for wireless Ad hoc networks. This algorithm utilizes cross-layer information of the network nodes and can balance the energy consumption of the network nodes in flow distribution under the situation that the network topology is maintained unchanged; moreover, the transmission power can be adjusted in routing process to meet the communications requirements and save limited energy; while the network topology changes at random, this algorithm can adjust multi-path routing, balance the energy consumption of network and prolong network survival time according to the comprehensive information of the network nodes. In this way, the simulation results also show that compared with other multi-path routing algorithms, this one can yield a better effect in aspects of prolonging network survival time, reducing average network delay and enhancing the throughput.
