A MANET (Mobile Ad hoc NETwork) is an interconnection of mobile devices by wireless links forming a dynamic topology without much physical network infrastructure such as routers, servers, access points/cables or centralized administration. Routing is a mechanism of exchanging data between the source node and the destination node. Several protocols are used to perform routing the information from the source node to the destination node. The main aim of this paper is to explore the working
more » ... the working principles of each unipath routing protocol. The unipath routing protocols are divided into Table- Driven (Proactive), On-demand (Reactive), Hybrid routing protocols.
