Abstract: Delay Tolerant Networks finds its application in variety of environments and addresses issues like intermittent connection, long and variable delays and high latency. Vehicular Delay Tolerant Networks was introduced due to its various characteristic matches with DTNs. In particular class of VDTN there are two types of nodes: Stationary and Mobile nodes. Stationary nodes are deployed along the roadside and mobile nodes are constrained to move over the roads with variable speeds. This letter presents a new routing algorithm based on Ant Colony Optimization in Vehicular Delay Tolerant Network. We performed extensive simulation in ONE simulator and compare with Probabilistic Bundle Relaying Scheme to gauge the benefits of Ant Colony Optimization based scheme over Probabilistic Bundle Relaying scheme.
