Abstract: MANET is perceived as a collection of mobile nodes that are free to move around. With their self-forming nature and their ability to cope with rapid changes of the topology, ad-hoc networks are attractive to a variety of applications. The applications running on MANET nodes can be viewed as services that are subject to requests from other nodes in the network. Service discovery mechanisms let the nodes advertise their services and make use of the needed services of the network. Some proposed solutions rely on the routing protocol to achieve both data forwarding and service discovery. But at any given time, the status of the communication links used in routing between the nodes depends on various factors. Frequent link breaks and repeated transmissions increase the complexity of the service discovery procedure. In order to overcome the above stated issues, a Stable and Energy aware Service Discovery (SESD) in a mobile environment is proposed. The main objective of this method is to provide a signal strength based stable and energy aware routing to provide service discovery with high success rate. Simulation results show the superiority of the proposed method compared to the existing methods.
