Reliable communication and effective routing methods are required for Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) structures having many application areas such as military, medical, meteorology, and geology. In this paper, the performance of Artificial Bee Colony Algorithm (ABC) on routing operations in WSNs is studied. Obtained performance result shows that the used protocol provides longer network life time by saving more energy. Complexity analysis of cluster-based routing strategy using ABC algorithm is made. Performance and analysis results approve that ABC algorithm presents promising solutions on WSN routings.
