Robust Ant Colony Based Routing Algorithm for Mobile Ad-hoc Networks
thesisposted on 16.10.2019 by Arush S Sharma
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
This thesis discusses about developing a routing protocol of mobile ad hoc networks in a bio inspired manner. Algorithms inspired by collective behaviour of social insect colonies, bird flocking, honey bee dancing, etc., promises to be capable of catering to the challenges faced by tiny wireless sensor networks. Challenges include but are not limited to low bandwidth, low memory, limited battery life, etc. This thesis proposes an energy efficient multi-path routing algorithm based on foraging nature of ant colonies and considers many other meta-heuristic factors to provide good robust paths from source node to destination node in a hope to overcome the challenges posed by resource constrained sensors.
