ABSTRACT
An ad hoc wireless network consists of mobile networks which create an underlying architecture for communication without the help of traditional fixed-position routers. There are different protocols for handling the routing in the mobile environment. Routing protocols used in fixed infrastructure networks cannot be efficiently used for mobile ad-hoc networks (MANET), so it requires different protocols. The node moves at different speeds in an independent random form, connected by any number of wireless links, where each node is ready to pass or forward both data and control traffic unrelated to its own use ahead (routing) to other nodes in a flexible interdependence of wireless communication in between. In contrast to infrastructure wireless networks, where the communication between network nodes is take place by a special node known as an access point. It is also, in contrast to wired networks in which the routing task is performed by special and specific devices called routers and switches. In this paper, we consider fuzzy inference system, an attempt has been made to present a model using fuzzy logic approach to evaluate and compare three routing protocols i.e. AODV, DSDV and DSR using effective factor of the number of nodes based on 3 outputs of control overhead, delay and PDR (totally fuzzy system with 4 outputs) in order to select one of these two routing protocols properly under different conditions and based on need and goal. To show efficiency and truth of fuzzy system, three protocols have been evaluated equally using NS-2 simulator and attempt has been made to prove efficiency of the designed fuzzy system by comparing results of simulation of fuzzy system and NS-2 software.
