In this paper based on swarm intelligence a new approach for an on demand ad-hoc routing algorithm is proposed. The foraging behavior of ant colony optimization and bee colony optimization are the subset of swarm intelligence and consider the ability of simple ants to solve complex problems by co-operation. Several algorithms which are based on ant colony problems were introduced in the literatures to solve different problems, e.g. optimization problems. The proposed algorithm is compared and proven by results that the approach has the potential to become an appropriate routing strategy for mobile ad-hoc networks.
