In Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs), multicast routing is favorable to minimize the cost of transmission as it routes data to a group of destinations simultaneously. However, the main aim of multicast routing is to maintain energy efficiency, ensure minimum delay and stability of paths. In this paper, they propose to develop a predictive energy efficient and reliable multicast routing using Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) in MANET. The technique uses PSO algorithm to construct energy efficient and reliable multicast tree. The fitness function of PSO algorithm is designed considering path delay, expected path energy and path stability. The proposed algorithm is simulated in NS-2. The simulation results proved that the proposed algorithm offers energy efficient and reliable multicast routing with low overhead.
