Wireless Sensor Networks have become an important research topic in last year. WSN is a collection o f tiny, large number of densely deployed sensor node; these sensor nodes are smart, effective which is very powerf ul and versatile networki ng where traditio nal wired and wireless networking is unable to deploy. These sensor nodes have limited transmission range, processing and storage capabilities as well as their energy resources. Routing protocols for wireles s sensor networks are responsible for maintaining the energy efficient paths in the network and have to ensure extended network lifetime. In this paper, we propose a new approach to provide multiple routing paths using an Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) a lgorithm. Ant Colony Optimization based routing alg orithms have been proposed to solve the routing problem trying to deal with these constrains. This paper will find an energy efficiency path in the WSNs using a method is based on Ant Colony Optimiza tion (ACO) algorithms, aiming to minimize the consumption of power, improve fault tolerance, and length the network lifetime. We conclude that the proposed protocol effectively extends the network lifetime with less consumption of energy in the ne twork.
