Improve the Performance of Cluster Head and Network Life time Using Fuzzy Logic

Adabala Krishna Prathyusha, V. Aditya Ramalingeswar Rao


Gathering is one of the most influential methods that can position the system process in related manner to join the network scalability, moderate vigor ingesting, and attain lengthy network lifetime. To overcome this subject, present academics have activated the proposal of many clustering algorithms. Though, most of the future algorithms overload the cluster head (CH) throughout cluster formation. To overwhelm this problematic, many investigators have originated up with the impression of fuzzy logic (FL), which is practical in WSN for choice making. These procedures focus on the ability of CH, which could be adoptive, flexible, and bright suitable to allocate the weight among the sensor nodes that can improve the network lifetime.
