Executive Summary

Mobile Ad Hoc NETworks (MANETS) are infrastructure less network consisting of mobile nodes, with constantly changing topologies that communicate via a wireless medium. Therefore, routing is a challenging issue in MANETs. Swarm Intelligence (SI) is an artificial intelligence technique based around on the study of collective behavior in decentralized, self-organized systems. Ant Colony Optimization is popular among other Swarm Intelligent Techniques. In this paper a detailed comparison of different Ant based algorithms is presented. The algorithms discussed here are Ant-Net Routing, Ant Colony based Routing Algorithm Routing, Ad hoc Networking with Swarm Intelligence Algorithm, Termite Routing Algorithm.
