AbstractAn adaptive routing system is used in a network for performing a communication in a packet form obtained by adding address data and data length to the transmission information. This connects nodes having input ports and output ports arranged in a distributed manner, by the input link and output link. This system enables the network to assign the neuron elements to input ports and output ports of respective nodes one by one, inputs a network state to the neuron element to evaluate the traffic condition of the network and determines the output port assigned to the neuron element having the "1" output from among the neuron elements assigned to the output ports of the respective nodes when the outputs of respective neuron elements are not changed after reaching the balanced state, thereby enabling the output of said output port to be produced in the optimum output direction of the packet from respective nodes.
