Wireless Sensor Network is a wide area monitoring tools supporting for Scientific Research, Low-power microscopic sensors. WSN uses limited resource memory, computation power, bandwidth, and energy. The Cluster Routing protocol is the best methodologies for energy efficiency in the wireless sensor network. Cluster Routing Protocols are used to form a cluster creation on the selection of cluster head (CH). Then the data packets are sending from one CH to another CH and finally data packets are send to the base station. CHs are selected by using the setup phase. This system proposed a multi hop transmission, where the data packets are send from one hop to another hop. Finally these data packets are transmitted to the base station. To transmit the packets from source sensor to wireless sensor network base station via the cluster head, using the fuzzy logic type 1with three parameters such as trust factor and distance. The fuzzy logic predicts the nodes, which is having high trust factor, and near to the base station CH will be selected as best forwarder by using Type 1 fuzzy logic. It will direct to increase the life time of network plus reduce the overhead of network.
