Routing with fault-tolerant mechanisms has a crucial effect on the fast exchange of information in variety of networks including mesh networks. This study attempts to choose an optimal path in terms of fault tolerance to transmit messages from source to destination while taking into account faulty nodes in such mesh networks. In this study, we take advantage of ant colony optimization algorithm to propose Adaptive Heuristic Routing algorithms to this problem. We use color pheromone ants to overcome problem of fail-recover behavior of network components. The proposed method is compared with fault-tolerant routing algorithm in mesh networks using the balanced ring. Simulation results depict that this method reacted quickly in terms of network faults, meanwhile in each time step the data can choose the optimal path to reach their destination. In this study, we improve performance of the proposed method using update ants to inform other nodes about the discovered shortest path. Simulation results show that the proposed method dramaticcaly increase efficiency of routing mechanism in mesh networks.
