With the popularity of multimedia, QoS service is demanding from day to day. The mobile ad hoc network is an important wireless network architecture, which is self-organized and without the assistance of basic infrastructures. QoS routing in mobile ad hoc networks is an important issue for wireless technology. The paper presents a distributed slots reservation protocol (DSRP) for QoS routing on TDMA-based mobile ad hoc networks. According to one-hop neighbor's information, some strategies to select the time slots in order to satisfy the QoS requirement and not to violate the hidden-terminal and exposed-terminal problems are proposed. Route maintenance and improvement are also provided to maintain or improve a route when the network topology is changed. According to the simulation results, the proposed protocol can not only increase the findings of a route with bandwidth requirement guaranteed but also raise the throughput and efficiency of the network.
