Our goal is to propose the optimal network model for HCI mobile terminals with limited capacity, and to provide ubiquitous services using the minimum cost and to prolong the system lifetime by reducing the energy consumption of mobile devices. In order to achieve these goals, we propose an energy-efficient routing protocol based on clustering scheme for hybrid ad hoc networks. By applying the index-based data broadcasting and selective tuning methods, the infra system performs the major operations related to clustering and routing on behalf of ad hoc nodes. The simulation result presents that our proposed scheme shows up to about 46% of performance improvements in comparison with other schemes.
