Abstract: - An ad-hoc network consists of wireless nodes communicating in a distributed way where all nodes potentially contribute to the routing process. The mobility of nodes and the error prone nature of the wireless medium pose many challenges like frequent route changes and packet losses. Such problem increases packet delay and decrease throughput. To improve the performance and maintain the Quality of Service of MANET, the packet scheduler can be used. Existing packet schedulers of wireless ad hoc networks serve data packets in FIFO order. In this project, a fuzzy priority calculation module to calculate priority of packet is proposed and designed based on various network parameters like data rate, queue length, expiry time, congestion and packet size. The performance of the proposed scheduler will be studied by incorporating the designed fuzzy priority calculation module in an experimental setup of 4 to 5 nodes. The network parameters like packet delivery ratio and end-to-end latency are measured and the obtained results will be compared with those obtained by without using the scheduler.
