Active Packets Improve Dynamic Source Routing for Ad hoc networks paper explains about to implement a new idea for improving the packet routing mechanism by reducing route cache problem in Dynamic source routing method.

DRS is one of the mostly used packet routing methods in ad-hoc wireless network which will help in taking requests and allocate a route for packet transmission. 

DSR systems should take every request which is handled by Route caches in DSR system. As the network size is increased route caches are inefficient a slow.

In this paper, we introduce new  Route caches in DSR are used to reduce flooding of route requests. But with the increase in network size and node mobility, cached routes quickly become stale or inefficient.

In this paper, we propose a new method using active packets. Active packet rooms are created around the network and collect network topology information. 

Using the information from active packets while traveling in the network, network nodes will update route caches which will decrease miss rates and route discovery flooding is reduced.
