Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR) is a standard proactive routing protocol for Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs). In this paper, the authors use a zero-order Sugeno Fuzzy Logic System (FLS) for adjusting the willingness parameter in OLSR protocol. Decisions made at each mobile node by the FLS take into account its remaining energy and its expected residual lifetime. Simulation study revealed that the proposed protocol Fuzzy Energy-Aware OLSR (FEA-OLSR) is more energy efficient than EE-OLSR a heuristic based energy-aware variant of OLSR.
