AntHocNet: An Ant-Based Hybrid Routing Algorithm for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
In this paper we present AntHocNet, a new algorithm for routing in mobile ad hoc networks. Due to the ever changing topology and limited bandwidth it is very hard to establish and maintain good routes in such networks. Especially reliability and efficiency are important concerns. AntHocNet is based on ideas from Ant Colony Optimization. It consists of both reactive and proactive components. In a reactive path setup phase, multiple paths are set up between the source and destination of a data session, and during the course of the communication session, ants proactively test existing paths and explore new ones. In simulation tests we show that AntHocNet can outperform AODV, one of the most important current state-of-the-art algorithms, both in terms of end-to-end delay and packet delivery ratio.
