Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) consists of small sensor nodes that cooperate with each other to send sensed data to the Base-Station (BS). Choice of optimal next hop for data routing is really important in WSN and it acts as a significant part in preserving energy. Individual parameters or weighted metric of different parameters are used in selecting a next hop, but the selection of suitable and effectual parameters and metric is very important to improve the performance of the network. This work considers a fuzzy logic approach to evaluate the performance of network w.r.t. different weighted metrics. Performance is evaluated by adding a fuzzy logic controller to determine best next hop metric selection for routing.
