F-PAC : A Novel Soft Index Based Cluster Head Validation & Gateway Election Mechanism for Ad Hoc Network

  title={F-PAC : A Novel Soft Index Based Cluster Head Validation \& Gateway Election Mechanism for Ad Hoc Network},
  author={S. Thirmurugan and E. George Dharma Prakash Raj},
In this dynamic scenario the communication no longer happens in predetermined manner. The network as a platform for communication comes with high infrastructure may likely to waste the resources. Thus, the ad hoc scenario network came into existence. This network functionality has been enhanced through clustering mechanism. These clusters need to be perfect to sustain the efficient functionality of the network. Thus, this paper proposes F-PAC as a fuzzy logic based cluster validation technique… Expand
