Abstract—Unmanned Aerial Vehicle “UAV” networks are rapidly evolving towards real world effective applications. Major research arenas are being motivated by industry activities in this domain, which demand for rapid exploitation of tremendous advantages of UAV networks. Routing is one of the most important functionalities in such networks. Based on channel characteristics, several factors play important roles in defining the best route for each node with its neighbors, which shall be set dynamically in real time. In this paper, we propose a computation of the required cost function for building the routing table; this cost function is strongly related to the transmission quality factor of the channel. We show the simplicity of our proposed method compared to Bit Error Rate “BER” calculation, together with an evaluation and assessment using simulation.
