Abstract—In this paper, we present QoS bee routing protocol (QBR), a new routing algorithm based on the characteristics of Ad hoc networks and the bee colony algorithm. The new routing protocol is inspired by the foraging behavior of bees in nature, which can find the solution of global optimal value very quickly with the characteristic that every bee is able to search local optimal solution. Biological bees are structured to several special bees’ agents. The dynamic optimization methods are suitable for the basic characteristics of the self-organizing networks. In the end, in order to examine the performance of the new algorithm, we compare the QBR algorithm and the traditional classical routing protocol-MAODV in the NS2. The results show that the new algorithm is better than MAODV both in bandwidth requirement and end-to-end delay, which proves that the new routing protocol is more adapted to the sensitive, high density, and high quality of the service networks.
