New Routing Algorithm Based on ACO Approach for Lifetime Optimization in Wireless Sensor Networks
Recently, wireless sensor networks have become an active research topic. Developing solution for the routing problem in this kind of network is one of the main topics considered by researchers in order to maximize the network life time. In this paper, the authors present a novel routing approach using an Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) algorithm for wireless sensor networks. Comparative performance test results of the proposed approach are included. Simulation results show that proposed algorithm provides promising solutions allowing node designers to efficiently operate routing tasks for maximizing the network lifetime.
