Fuzzy-Based M-AODV Routing Protocol in MANETs

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 380)


The Mobile ad hoc wireless network is infrastructure less mobile network that allows communication among several mobile devices. The energy and delay of each mobile node affect the network performance in higher load. So, it becomes important to take into account these factors during the path selection. Here, we propose a method to incorporate the concept of fuzzy logic system to existing AODV routing protocol, and to select the optimal path by considering the remaining energy and delay of each node along with hop count. The experiment result shows that the proposed fuzzy-based modify-AODV (M-AODV) routing protocol outperforms the existing AODV in terms of average end-to-end delay and packet delivery ratio.
