Most interesting area is the growing demand of flying-IoT mergers with smart cities. However, aerial vehicles, especially unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), have limited capabilities for maintaining node energy efficiency. In order to communicate effectively, IoT is a key element for smart cities. While improving network performance, routing protocols can be deployed in flying-IoT to improve latency, packet drop rate, packet delivery, power utilization, and average-end-to-end delay. Furthermore, in literature, proposed techniques are very much complex which cannot be easily implemented in real-world applications. This issue leads to the development of lightweight energy-efficient routing in flying-IoT networks. This paper addresses the energy conservation problem in flying-IoT. This paper presents a novel approach for the internet of flying vehicles using DSDV routing. ISH-DSDV gives the notion of bellman-ford algorithm consisting of routing updates, information broadcasting, and stale method. DSDV shows optimal results in comparison with other contemporary routing protocols. Nomadic mobility model is utilized in the scenario of flying networks to check the performance of routing protocols.
