Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is an infrastructure independent network with every mobile node acting as the router in the network formation. These networks are most useful when the present infrastructure is destroyed or at remote locations which are deprived of these amenities. One of the biggest challenges of these networks is the mobility of the nodes in the network. Zone Routing Protocol (ZRP), a hybrid MANET protocol which is based on zones and the zone radius is measured in terms of hops. But in practical, this may not be the good idea for getting optimum performance. In this paper, we have considered the physical distance between the network nodes to define the zone radius. We have used a distributed, infrastructure-free positioning algorithm which uses the distances between the mobile nodes and builds the relative coordinate system. The proposed technique is defining zone radius of ZRP in terms of physical distance rather number of hops. It uses an algorithm computes the node positions in two dimensions and it is independent of Global Positioning System (GPS).It is being implemented in Network Simulator 2 (NS2). The first part of this paper introduces the conventional ZRP performance and the second part of the work is implementation of ZRP based on physical distance called Physical Distance based ZRP (PDZRP) and the performance of the both the protocols are compared in terms of throughput and packet delivery fraction and end to end delay
