Clustering, an energy efficient approach is used in Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). Clustering involves cluster formation and cluster head selection. As the cluster head is involved in carrying out the entire communication, a high energy node has to be selected as cluster head. In this paper, a novel predictive fuzzy based cluster head selection algorithm is proposed. The proposal suggests a new input parameter, rate of recurrent communication apart from the standard parameters namely the residual power of sensor nodes, degree of neighboring nodes, distance between the node and base station, sensor node movement.
