Abstract: Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have increased huge consideration because of their wide scope of utilizations. In these networks, the sensor hubs gather various kinds of information from the general condition. During the transmission of collected data packets, some of them will be dropped due to the collision of packets. So, collide packets are retransmitted which may lead the network to high energy consumption. As Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol has responsible for reliable communication in WSN, an enhanced MAC protocol has to be proposed for improving energy efficiency of the network. By considering this solution, Fuzzy Based Enhanced Medium Access Control protocol (Fuzzy-MAC) is proposed in this paper. Before transmission, data packets are prioritized using the Fuzzy system. Then the packets are transmitted in light of the need of the parcels. Simulation results show that the exhibition of the proposed Fuzzy-MAC beats that of existing MAC protocols as far as energy utilization, delivery ratio and throughput.
