This research focuses on routing of time-sensitive data in mobile ad hoc networks. Routing protocols that were developed for ad hoc networks have been reviewed. Ad Hoc On-demand Distance Vectoring (AODV) routing protocol, which is a prominent routing protocol among these protocols have been implemented in OPNET, a discrete-event simulation tool. Taking AODV as a point of departure, a routing protocol named Real Time Routing Protocol (RTRP) has been developed and also implemented in simulation environment. The performance of these routing protocols have been observed by simulating them in various experiments where the workload has been chosen to be time-sensitive data. Results show that for lightly loaded networks, AODV and RTRP have similar performance. When the workload introduced to the network is increased, RTRP outperforms AODV significantly.
