Publication Abstract: 

In this paper we have presented the improved ACO algorithm that has been utilized in BIOSARP to perform self-optimized routing in WSN. BIOSARP has been studied and verified through simulation in network simulator 2 (NS-2). In simulation study BIOSARP normalized overhead is 12.1% less as compare to E&D ANTS and achieves 14% higher delivery ratio with 9% less power consumption when compared to SRTLD. Hence, the results confirm that BIOSARP offers better performance and can be practically implemented in WSN applications as structural and environmental monitoring, battlefield surveillance.
