Ant Based Self-Organized Routing Protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks
Source: Universiti Teknologi Malaysia
The field of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) is an important and challenging research area today. Advancements in sensor networks enable a wide range of environmental monitoring and object tracking applications. Moreover, multihop routing in WSN is affected by new nodes constantly entering/leaving the system. Therefore, biologically inspired algorithms are reviewed and enhanced to tackle problems arise in WSN. Ant routing has shown an excellent performance for sensor networks. Certain parameters like energy level, link quality, lose rate are considered while making decisions. These decisions will come up with the optimal route. In this paper, the design and result of ant based autonomous routing algorithm for the sensor networks is presented.
