Abstract: A mobile ad hoc network is a collection of mobile nodes with the versatile environment. Since the node varies at each time it is difficult to design the routing protocol in terms of qualities such as energy efficient, routing overhead, bandwidth capabilities and so on. Various researches has been undertaken to make a reliable routing protocol for proper communication. On considering this, we designed a routing protocol based on the fuzzy and ant colony algorithm for a multipath network. In this, fuzzy is used to determine the node qualities with the node value based on energy, nodes signal strength and mobility. Then the ant colony optimisation helps to reach the destination shortly from the multiple paths with the distance from source to destination and the node value from fuzzy. On combining these two methods the routing protocol was proposed and it compared with the existing MMQARP routing protocol. The simulation result shows that the proposed method gives high performance efficiency in transferring the data from source to destination with the high packet delivery ratio, less delay and high jitter.
