This paper presents a cluster based, adaptive routing protocol that dynamically adapts to node's failure and mobility. Cluster head election, Mobility management, Failure management and Load balancing are the main parts of the protocol which are controlled by a Fuzzy decision making function. A new load balancing method by using Load tree is presented in this approach. The simulations results show the efficiency of this algorithm to manage the mobility and failure of the nodes and also to balance the load in the network.
