Abstract: In hybrid wireless networks, the process of scheduling the packets to the forwarding node is difficult owing to the node mobility and large packet size factors. Also, the energy consumed during this process is increased. Hence in order to overcome this issue, in this study, we propose a fuzzy based mobility and energy aware QoS routing protocol for hybrid wireless networks. In this protocol, the Link Expiration Time (LET), Residual Energy (RE) and Received Signal Strength (RSS) of a node are estimated. The packets are classified based on the deadline and packet size. The scheduling probability of node is estimated using fuzzy logic technique based on the parameters that includes load, space utility, RE, LET and RSS. Further, depending on the category of the packet, the corresponding forwarding node is assigned based on the estimated scheduling probability. By simulation results, we show that the proposed technique reduces the energy consumption and traffic load.
