Abstract: Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are suffering from protocols requiring high energy for packet routing to base station. The nodes energy dissipation in communicating with base station plays major role while designing a routing protocol because it directly affects the life of the node as well as the entire network as nodes operate with battery that is not replaceable. Here, we develop a new routing method with innovative technique to eliminate energy inefficiencies that shorten the lifetime of the network, TINPAR: trust integrated node potential aware routing for wireless sensor networks. In this routing method, at every node in the route, a high potential node among its neighbours will be elected for forwarding the packet applying fuzzy logic on residual energy, trust and the distance from the base station. In this new way of routing, the election of next hop node is spread to all nodes in the radio range.

Keywords: wireless sensor networks; WSNs; fuzzy logic controllers; FLCs; routing protocols; trust management systems; TMS; fuzzy control; node energy dissipation; network lifetime; residual energy; energy efficiency.
