Abstract: In wireless sensor networks, the selection of cluster heads relies upon the various selection parameters, such as energy, distance, node concentration and rate of retransmission. There is always uncertainty in the suitability of sensor node for the cluster head role due to these various selection parameters. Fuzzy logic is capable of overcoming uncertainties even with incomplete available information. This quality of fuzzy logic can reduce uncertainty in cluster head selection up to large extent. Therefore, in this paper, a fuzzy logic based clustering approach is proposed to enhance the network operational lifetime. The cluster formation is done on the basis of the spatial correlation value between sensors to organize clusters uniformly in the network. The results are compared with well-known approaches CHEF and LEACH.
