Vehicular ad hoc networks (VANET) are gaining popularity for enabling a wide range of applications for road traffic safety, infotainment and road transportation management. For real-time applications to be successfully deployed in VANET, their quality of service (QoS) requirements need to be met. In this paper, we propose a QoS-based routing protocol named FBQoS-Vanet, which accommodates applications with QoS requirements. This protocol uses a bio-inspired artificial bee colony (ABC) approach for discovering routes complying with QoS criteria. We also use fuzzy logic to identify a feasible path among several available ones discovered by ABC. We rely on the evaluation of a composite fuzzy cost expressed in terms of QoS metrics, where the path must satisfy criteria such as: bandwidth, delay, jitter, and link expiry time. The performance results obtained show the benefits of using our scheme for routing various classes of traffic in VANET with different QoS requirements.
