Shortest Path Evaluation in Wireless Network Using Fuzzy Logic



Evaluation of the shortest path in a wireless network is to ensure the fast and guaranteed delivery of the data over the established wireless network. Most of the wireless protocols are using a shortest path evaluation technique which is based on the random weights assigned to the network nodes. This alone may not be sufficient to get the accurate shortest path for routing process. Most of the shortest path evaluation algorithms perform the blind search to find the shortest routes for routing, this eventually increase the complexity of the whole process itself. This article puts some light on facts of using real time estimated routing delay from source node to other nodes by broadcasting a “knock” message. And this delay is being used to evaluate the shortest path for routing using fuzzy logic. This process is enhanced with its improved inference engine model and furnished fuzzy crisp patterns to deploy the shortest routing path in real time wireless nodes.
