Wireless sensor networks suffer from the problems of congestion, which lead to packet loss and excessive energy consumption. In this paper, we address both node-level and link-level congestion and propose a new routing protocol namely ant based routing with congestion control (ARCC), for wireless sensor networks, which takes into account the congestion of the network at a given instance and proposes to reduce it and then finds the optimum paths. Also, a comparison of simulation with a few existing works highlights the edge that ARCC has over its contemporaries in terms of various network quality parameters.
