We introduce a new bee-inspired routing protocol for mobile ad hoc networks. Emphasis is given to the ability of bees to evaluate paths by considering several quality factors. In order to achieve similar behaviour in the networking environment, BeeIP is using cross-layering. Fetching parameters from the lower PHY and MAC layers to the core of the protocol, offers the artificial bees the ability to make predictions of the link's future performance. The simulation results show that BeeIP achieves higher data delivery rates and less control overhead compared to DSDV, and has slightly better results to AODV, initializing less routing discovery processes.
