ABSTRACT
A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a temporary network which is formed by a group of wireless mobile devices without the aid of any centralized infrastructure. In such environments, finding the identity of a mobile device and maintaining the paths between any two nodes are challenging tasks, in real time the limited propagation range of mobile devices restrict its identity only to its neighbors and a new host enters in to a MANET does not know the complete details of that instantaneous MANET. This paper analyses the possibility of content based route discovery and proposes a framework for request based route discovery and path maintenance using ant agents. The ant agents fetch routing information along with content relevancy which will have a major influence on pheromone value. The pheromone value is used to find the probability of goodness. The proposed framework consists of ant structures and algorithms for route discovery and path maintenance.
