Recent advances in WSN (Wireless Sensor Networks) have led to many routing protocols designed for more efficiency of energy utilization in the WSN field. While many routing protocols have been proposed in this field, a single routing protocol cannot be energy-efficient if the environment of the sensor network varies. This paper presents a FAR (Fuzzy logic based Adaptive Routing) algorithm that provides energy-efficiency by dynamically changing the protocols installed at the sensor nodes. The algorithm changes protocols based on the output of the fuzzy logic which is the fitness level of the protocols for the environment.
