In ad hoc networks, due to the mobility of nodes, communication links are unstable and restricted. As such, an efficient routing protocol is needed in order to solve these problems. In the present paper, we propose a neighbors based routing (NBR) protocol by constructing paths in an area in which a large number of nodes exists. Simulations confirm that the proposed protocol has higher connectivity and a lower control overhead than existing protocols in topologies in which nodes move.
