This paper presents a fast neighbour detection scheme for a proactive MANET routing protocol. Instead of using periodic HELLO messages, the proposed scheme adopts explicit handshake mechanism to reduce the latency in neighbour detection. In particular, two route handshake options are presented, namely the Broadcast based handshake (BHS) algorithm and Unicast based handshake (UHS) algorithm. Our simulation results show that the proposed scheme improves routing performance, especially in networks with moderate or high mobility. In low-density networks, the unicast option improves the routing throughput significantly without introducing extra control overhead.
