Void aware Opportunistic Routing Protocol using Fuzzy Logic Relay System for Underwater Wireless Sensor Networks
International Journal for Research in Applied Science and Engineering Technology
In research community, UWSN has been evolving immensely due to the innovation of wireless sensor technology. UWSN is a sensor network formed by underwater sensor nodes with sensing, processing, storage and underwater wireless communication capabilities for different underwater applications. A fuzzy logic void aware opportunistic routing (FLVAOR) protocol has been proposed to overcome void area problems and high energy consumption of a sensor node. A void node is detected using monitor centre
... g monitor centre sensor node and forwards the data packets to the surface sink node by means of energy constraints in sensor devices to enhance the network performance. FLVAOR is scheduling the packets transmission towards the surface sink by taking the account of holding timer which is designed for the forwarder relay set and to elect the best relay path in order to enhance the performance metrics of energy expenditure, packet delivery ratio and end to end delay.
