Lifetime enhancement has always been a crucial issue in the field of wireless sensor networks (WSNs). In the recent past, a number of issues related to WSNs have been addressed through fuzzy-based algorithms. Fuzzy-based algorithms have shown their potential in data fusion, clustering, and energy-efficient routing. In this survey, we have presented the performances of type-2 fuzzy-based algorithms for solving the various issues of WSNs.
