Nodes in mobile ad hoc network communicate with each other through wireless multi-hop links. When a node wants to send data to another node, it uses some routing protocol to ﬁnd the path. In on-demand routing protocols, the source starts a route discovery to ﬁnd the route leading to the destination. Route discovery is typically performed via ﬂooding, which consumes a lot of control packets. Because of node mobility, the network topology change frequently and cause the route broken. In this paper, we propose a reliable local recovery routing protocol based on clustering coeﬃcient (RLRCC). We choose a route with higher route cost which can decrease the number of route failure occur and also can reduce the route discovery times. Simulation results show our protocol can decrease the number of control packets and increase route delivery ratio.
