ACO (Ant Colony Optimization) is a well - known metaheuristic in which a colony of artificial ants cooperates in explain Good solution to a combinational optimization problem. Wireless sensor consisting of nodes with limited power is deployed to gather useful information from the field. In wireless sensor network it is critical to collect the information in an energy efficient manner. Ant colony optimization, a swarm intelligence based optimization technique, is widely used in network routing. A novel routing approach using an ant colony optimization algorithm is proposed for wireless sensor network consisting of stable nodes illustrative example details description and cooperative performance test result the proposed approach are included.
