The Wisdom of the Hive Applied to Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks
Proceedings SIS 2005, IEEE Swarm Intelligence Symposium, S. 341-348, Pasadena, California, USA, 2005-06-08


In this paper we present an energy efficient routing algorithm, BeeAdHoc, which is inspired from foraging principles of honey bees. The bee behavior was instrumental in designing efficient mobile agents, scouts and foragers, for routing in mobile ad-hoc networks. We did extensive simulations to verify that BeeAdHoc consumes significantly less wireless network card energy as compared to DSR, AODV, and DSDV, which are existing state-of-the-art routing algorithms, but without compromising traditional performance metrics, packet delivery ratio and delay.
