MANETs are a collection of unstructured wireless mobile nodes that form a dynamic topology. The design and performance evaluation of Anthoc algorithms have been one of the prime areas of research in bio-inspired computing. In this paper, the authors propose a newer variation of the Anthoc protocol, which is a novel phenomenon that tackles major issues in MANETs like self-organization and adaptability. This can be achieved by evaluating the goodness value (pheromone traces) which is associated with the drain rate of the nodes, thus increasing overall network lifetime.
