Flooding is an indispensable operation in wireless ad hoc networks. The traditional flooding scheme generates excessive redundant packet retransmissions. In this paper, we propose an efficient flooding protocol that consumes less energy, reduces the number of forwarding nodes almost to that of the benchmark, but maintains a high delivery ratio.
