Review on Ant Colony Optimization Aware Routing for Wireless Sensor Networks

Shilpa Thakur, Mohit Trehan


Wireless Sensor Network is basically a network which consist of number of nodes called sensor nodes. Sensor nodes
have capability to sense their surroundings , communicate with their neighbor nodes and also perform computation of the sense
data. The sensor nodes have limitation such as limited power, small bandwidth , memory. To resolve these issues a bio-inspired
technique called Ant Colony Optimization is introduce. ACO is a decentralized and metaheuristic technique. It provides efficient
data transmission , find optimal routing path. The paper provides the overview of the ACO technique.

Keywords: WSN, ACO, energy efficient, pheromone.
