Flynig sensor network (FSN) for internet of things (IoT) consist of flying nodes called sensors and ground segments. The flying nodes may be operated manually or it may be automated devices. The flying segment of IoT has different nature compared to ordinary mobile sensor network. The flying speed and diverse directions of nodes make it harder to route the sensor information in a desired way. The data may be collected on the basis of contract opportunities. Here the timely delivery may not be guaranteed. To ensure the desired operation of the FSN, the delivery of data to the base station either deployed in the air or on the ground segment must be ensured in an efficient manner. In this paper, the mating intelligence of bees is used to ensure the delivery of data. The energy consumption is reduced by reducing the amount of control messages and transmitting redundant information. The network lifetime is increased. Simulation is conducted to evaluate the performance of the proposed scheme. The simulation results show that the proposed scheme outperforms existing schemes under consideration.
