In this paper, we propose a novel swarm‐inspired system for detecting wildfires using sensor networks. There are three‐fold concerns of this paper. The first is the speed of information propagation, the second is the accuracy of the information being propagated and the third is the reliability of the system over a long period of time. With these in mind, we develop a probabilistic model for focusing on responses for query requests in an accurate manner, similar to the assignment of… 

A Wildfire Prediction Based on Fuzzy Inference System for Wireless Sensor Networks

A Review on Swarm Intelligence Based Routing Approaches

An evocative taxonomy and comparison of various swarm-based routing algorithms are presented and will be helpful to the researchers as a reference on bio-inspired algorithms for new protocol designs and also for the proper selection of routing protocols according to the type of applications.


This paper studies bio-inspired routing protocols for MANETs, a collection of autonomous self-organizing wireless mobile nodes forming a temporary network without using centralized access points, and introduces the preliminary studies for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks.
