Abstract

Sensor nodes of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are resource constraints in energy, memory, processing and communication bandwidth. Since they are operated by battery, their life span is limited. Specially, energy conservation is very important issue in the WSN, because it directly affects the life of the node as well as the entire network. Here, we develop a new way of electing a node among many trustworthy nodes for routing processes. This method consumes the energies of network nodes based on Fuzzy logic applied on their residual energy, trust level and distance from the Base Station. The proposed method elects one indispensible node for participating in routing among many worthy nodes. Hence, this method of election of node for routing in WSN sees the conservation of nodes energies go by very smooth and justifying, thereby increasing the life of the WSN. © 2012 IEEE.
