This paper focuses on how the probability can affect on the ad hoc routing protocols and especially on AODV regarding energy consumption. The evaluation of the performance of AODV with different message forwarding probability based on the mechanism that AODV protocol uses in order to forward the message in all nodes of the network. The evaluation of AODV protocol was carried out using network simulator-2 (NS-2), on 10 scales of probability. The outcome of this evaluation showed that using smaller probability than that of the original AODV protocol has, we can have better results on power consumption.
