Routing in ad hoc networks faces significant challenges due to node mobility and dynamic network topology. In this work we propose the use of mobility prediction to reduce the search space required for route discovery. A method of mobility prediction making use of a sectorized cluster structure is described with the proposal of the Prediction based Location Aided Routing (P-LAR) protocol. Simulation study and analytical results of P-LAR find it to offer considerable saving in the amount of routing traffic generated during the route discovery phase.
