In this paper, the authors propose an algorithm for intelligent Cluster Head (CH) election in clustered-AODV-based routing. Initially, the K-mean for clustering the MANET nodes have been used according to their distances between them. Next, the intelligent CH election using soft computing techniques that includes sequential hybrid fuzzy-genetic controller for this decision making have also been applied. The paper simulation shows that the clustered - AODV-based routing protocol can be modified by changing the ordinary known AODV protocol (classical AODV) to comply with the clustered network.
