Abstract

Compared to the conventional table-driven and on-demand routing protocols, a hybrid routing protocol [71], which uses mobile agents and reactive route discovery, introduced a more realistic solution to this problem. However, the mobile agents were not fully exploited in this protocol. In this thesis research, we will propose an improved MultiAnts-AODV routing protocol based on ant-AODV The goal of our design is to reduce the end-to-end delay and route discovery latency. To achieve a better performance, the communication scheme among the agents is strengthened. We also present an improved navigation algorithm for mobile agents to update the routing tables more efficiently. We extend the routing table to reduce the latency of routing discovery in case of link failures. The simulation based comparisons among several navigation algorithms are also presented.
