Cognitive Radio Ad Hoc NETwork (CRAHN) is a burning technology in the wireless communication area and has the advanced features like self-healing, self-configuring and robustness with low deployment cost. In this environment routing has an important role to establish the path and transmit the data from source node to destination node. So the cutting edge research on the efficient and effective route construction in the networks is paying more interest. The efficient and effective route can be made by selecting the best neighbor node for transmitting the packets. In this paper, it has been established the efficient and effictive route, using fuzzy logic based on node’s energy and signal strength of anteena of a node with better spectrum management which are important constraints for routing the packets.
