Bluetronix is developing novel MANET routing algorithms based on swarm intelligence. The technology is called SARA: Swarm Autonomous Routing Algorithm.
In simulation, the algorithms have been shown to perform better than AODV, DSR, and LAR1
for networks containing a large number of nodes.
SwarmSim is a simulator developed by Bluetronix to test and demonstrate the functionality
of its swarm intelligent routing technology. The SwarmSim demo is a simplified version of the simulator that allows the user
to view the algorithm's performance for different network configurations.
The SwarmSim Demo runs on Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003.
