Abstract: MANET is a self-configuring, autonomous and infrastructure less network. MANET has received its popularity by its easy installation and usage at any environment. Sudden change in the network topology may lead to enormous challenges in finding and maintaining the optimal route between source and destination. The nodes in MANET can leave the network at any time which causes route failure leading to consume more energy in finding the alternate route. Routing is one of the top issues in network research domain and it prefers to find and maintain the routes among the nodes. In this paper flexible particle swarm optimization-based routing protocol is proposed to avoid route failure and energy consumption. The proposed protocol is designed to have increased communication between the particles in the swarm and this results in finding the best route towards the destination. This research work utilizes the benchmark performance metrics to measure the performance of proposed protocols against the existing routing protocols. The result shows that the proposed protocol outperforms than the existing routing protocols.
