With the flourish development of the fifth generation mobile communication (5G) and Internet of Things (IoT) research, as an important complementary form of 5G, Ad Hoc network has developed rapidly in the field of wireless communication. AOMDV routing protocol generates alternative multipath to shorten the time of routing reconstruction, thus reducing end-to-end delay. However, parameters such as node load and residual energy are not taken into account. Therefore, this paper designs a routing protocol based on load balancing with energy constraining, which selects nodes with lower queue length of MAC layer interface queue and higher residual energy to forward packets. The simulation results show that the performance of the improved protocol in terms of the number of energy exhausted node, average end-to-end delay and routing discovery frequency has been effectively improved.
