A Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is a non-centralised, multihop, wireless network that lacks a common infrastructure and hence it needs self-organisation. The biggest challenge in MANETs is to find a path between communicating nodes, which is the MANET routing problem. Biology-inspired techniques such as Ant Colony Optimisation (ACO) which have proven to be very adaptable in other problem domains, have been applied to the MANET routing problem as it forms a good fit to the problem. The general characteristics of these biological systems, which include their capability for self-organisation, self-healing and local decision making, make them suitable for routing in MANETs.
