This paper presents a hybrid routing protocol based on Mobile Agent (HRPMA) for Ad Hoc Networks (MANET). In the proposed approach, a few mobile agents move in the network and communicate with each node. They collect the network information to build the global information matrix of nodes. The data packets are transferred according to the matrix by a routing search algorithm. We have done the experiments in simulated environment of NS-2 system. This approach needs fewer moving agents to get more global information; therefore it reduces the overhead and is very efficient and robust.
