A collection of dynamic self-organized nodes, which can transmit data using radio waves, is known as a mobile ad-hoc network (MANET). This is an infrastructureless network as they are very flexible in nature and do not need any central administration. They are very much useful for temporary communication links like for military communication during the time of war. The challenge in MANET is to find the optimal path for communication between source and destination which can be achieved by using the dynamic behavior of mobile nodes.In this paper we present a new routing algorithm for mobile, multi-hop ad-hoc networks. This technique will have Ant-Colony-Based Routing Algorithm which give emphasis on energy saving, trust value and link quality. The introduced routing protocol is highly adaptive, efficient and scalable.
