A Survey on Algorithms Based on Bee Swarms for Ad Hoc Networks



Ad hoc networks are wireless networks with new architectures, which are formed in any environment that is needed, without a fixed infrastructure. Due to a lack of central management and fixed infrastructure, and the poor physical security of nodes, these networks are extremely vulnerable. As the usage and development of ad hoc networks increases, problems related to these networks are a popular research topic. Hence, efficient and effective algorithms, such as bee algorithms, were created, which were inspired by the foraging principles of honey bees. In this paper, we study algorithms based on bee swarms in ad hoc networks.
