Abstract: In Mobile Adhoc Network (MANET) flooding is used as the broadcasting mechanism for identifying the network path between sender and receiver nodes. The implementation of flooding mechanism reduces the performance of the whole network. This traditional flooding mechanism generates the large number of duplicate packets which were transferred all along the network which increases the network contention, collision and retransmission. A probabilistic broadcasting algorithm is used to optimise the flooding mechanism to avoid the broadcast storm problem in MANETs. The dynamic probabilistic routing algorithm is developed to handle packet duplication and error generated due to noise present in the wireless channel. The retransmission probability value is calculated by considering the number of nodes in the neighbourhood MANET environment [1]. This algorithm is tested and compared with the traditional routing algorithm in terms of significant parameters like packet delivery ratio, end to end delay etc.
