Currently, reliable data transfer, and energy management have been considered as a significant research challenge in the underwater acoustic sensor networks (UWASN) owing to high packet loss, limited ratio of bandwidth with significant incur of energy, network life time with high propagation delay, less precision with high data hold time and so on. Energy saving and maintaining quality of service (QoS) is more important for UWASN owing to QoS application necessity and limited sensor nodes. To address this issue, several existing algorithms such as adaptive data forwarding algorithms, QoS-based congestion control algorithms and several methodologies were proposed with high throughput and less network lifetime as well as the less utilization of energy in UWASN by choosing sensor nodes data based on data transfer and link reliability. However, all the conventional algorithms have fixed data hold time, which incurs more end-to-end delay with less reliability of data and consumption of high energy due to high data transfer reachability. This high end research proposes adaptive energy aware quality of service (AEA-QoS) algorithm for reliable data delivery by formulating discrete times stochastic control process and deep learning techniques for UWSAN to overcome these issues. The proposed algorithm has been validated with conventional state-of-the-art methods and results show that the proposed approach exhibits its effectiveness in terms of less network overhead and propagation delay with high throughput and less energy consumption for every reliable packet transmission.
