      A. Packet Delivery Ratio
      Packet delivery ratio is the ratio of the        Figure 4: Mobility Vs Routing Overhead
      number of data packets received by a
      destination over the number of data                    The above Figure 4 shows the
      packets      delivered       by       the       routing overhead of SRRI and ELET
      corresponding source.                           with different number of mobile nodes
                                                      and mobility speeds, respectively. As
                                                      shown in Figure 4 routing overhead
                                                      increases as the number of mobile
                                                      nodes or the mobility speed increases.
                                                      The routing overhead for ELET is
                                                      higher than SRRI.

                                                            The number of packets can be
                                                      sent along the path between the

      different number of mobility speeds.
      We can observe that SRRI transmits
      and receives more data packet than
      ELET. The ELET path may break
      easily. SRRI will always choose the
      most stable and reliable path, the
      chance of link breakage for SRRI is
      lower than ELET since ELET didn’t
      consider the stability of the selected

      B. Routing Overhead

      Routing Overhead can be termed as
      the total number of overhead packets                Figure 5: Mobility Vs Bandwidth-
      is transmitted per second. This metric                        Consumption
      indicates the routing cost.
                                                           The Figure 5 shows the
                                                      bandwidth consumption of SRRI and
                                                      ELET with different number of mobility                                                                   Page 6
