In recent years, many studies have proposed various ways to strengthen wireless networks' performance. In this paper, we identify some drawbacks arising from protocol improved location-aided routing (ILAR). Nodes around the borders of a given broadcast coverage might quickly and easily move out, resulting in a broken routing path. Another problem in ILAR is that, although it may have a better forwarding node available for use a relay node could fail. Therefore we propose a novel routing protocol integrated power balance scheme to help resolve the problems mentioned above. Furthermore, the scheme employs position information and a power-saving scheme to balance the energy of each node and to lengthen the entire network's life. To achieve these goals, there must be a reduction in the simultaneous loading of networks. Therefore, we also propose a cluster-based routing mechanism in mobile ad hoc networks. This mechanism can reduce the loading of networks, energy conservation, and increase the lifetime of nodes and networks.
