Abstract: In mobile wireless sensor networks, the existing routing technique results in increased energy consumption, time consumption, delay, increased mobility, and so on. Hence, in this paper, we propose a cluster-based routing using fuzzy and bee colony optimisation in mobile wireless sensor networks. In this technique, cluster heads are elected using artificial bee colony (ABC) algorithm based on the mobility factor. Then, timeslots are assigned to each cluster member using TDMA schedule. Moreover, an inter cluster routing scheme is developed for the cluster members to route the collected messages using fuzzy logic based on the number of hops, battery level, and mobility factor.

Keywords: mobile wireless sensor networks; bee colony optimisation; cluster-based routing; CBR; time division multiple access; TDMA; maximum residual energy; fuzzification.
