Swarm Intelligence is an artificial intelligence discipline which is concerned with the design of intelligent multi-agent systems by taking inspiration from the collective behaviours of social insects and other animal societies. They are characterized by a decentralized way of working that mimics the behaviour of the swarm. Swarm Intelligence is a successful paradigm for the algorithm with complex problems. The purpose of the research is to apply swarm intelligence on routing algorithms used in MANET. Swarm intelligence based routing algorithm will more promising for specific nature of ad- hoc networks and will outperform in real scenarios/constraints/environmental conditions and will tune and simulate to get an efficient and effective routing protocol for MANET.
