Abstract: In Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET), forwarding probability should consider neighbour density, link quality and residual energy of the forwarding nodes. Also, redundant broadcasting by checking the inter-arrival times should be considered. In this paper, we propose to design a adaptive broadcast routing protocol using Fuzzy logic system. In this protocol, a set of forwarding nodes are selected based on the residual energy, coverage probability and channel condition. The rebroadcasting or forwarding probability is adaptively adjusted based on the 1-hop neighbour density and relative mobility of neighbours using the fuzzy logic system. Then the selected forwarding nodes forward the route request packets with the probability given by forwarding probability. Before forwarding the packets, the number of redundant packets exceeding a threshold value, are removed by checking successful status of delivered packets. By simulation results, we show that ABRP minimizes the delay and forwarding ratio by increasing the packet delivery ratio and average residual energy.
