Abstract -
The most interesting and challenging research areas in WSNs is maximizing the network lifetime using energy efficient routing. Energy conservation is the primary challenge for WSNs and utilizing the energy efficiently during routing is an essential requirement and is a demanding task for all other research areas in WSNs. Minimizing the energy consumption and enhancing the lifetime of the network depending on routing protocols are the main objectives in designing WSNs since the sensor nodes are battery operated and cannot be replenished or recharged frequently. Here A Routing Protocol (ACORP) is proposed for increasing the Wireless Sensor Network lifetime using Ant Colony Optimization meta heuristics. The performance of the protocol is simulated and observed in terms of packet drop, delay, Delivery Ratio and Energy consumption and compared with existing Ad hoc on Demand Distance Vector routing protocol and self healing routing protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks.
