In this paper, a high throughput routing protocol for Multi-Rate Ad-hoc Networks using lower layer information is proposed. Maximize the proposed “Route Assessment Index” metric ensures that the selected route has high throughput and reliable links. Also, the chosen route could avoid link bottleneck, hence, reducing the packet drop rate. The correctness of the proposal is proved and the simulation results show that our new metric provides an accurate and efficient method for evaluating and selecting the best route in Multi-Rate Ad-hoc Networks.
