In recent times, Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) got a lot of attention due to decentralized, infrastructure less networks. The ad-hoc network has challenging issues, which can be categorized as energy consumption, routing, overheads, limited bandwidth. Existing basic routing protocols consume considerable amount of energy in the node. To resolve these problems, many researchers have performed research and recently came up with new class of routing algorithms which is based on swarm intelligence along with basic routing protocols in MANET.
