The limited battery energy is an important consideration in the effective operation of an Ad- hoc network. We propose a protocol named as Energy Saving Multi Directional Routing (ESMDR) that provides a lower energy cost effective routing solution. The performance evaluation of our protocol is carried out using a statistically collected data over Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) and Ad-Hoc On-Demand Distance Vector (AODV) protocol. Analysis exhibits a clear edge over the existing protocol.
