Vehicular Ad hoc Networks (VANETs) are the network of vehicles, well known as VANETs, a prominent research domain among the researchers and academicians due to its significant applications in Mobile Ad hoc Networks. Attaining the Quality of Services (QoS) in real-time routing is a crucial challenge in the VANETs research. In this paper we have proposed a Swarm intelligence and Stigmergy based approach inspired by the life of army ants. The simulation is implemented using NS-2.35 and SUMO to analyse the performance metrics like Packet delivery ratio, end-to-end delay, throughput and control overheads. Our simulation results outperforms in terms of Packet delivery ratio throughput and lesser delay.
