Abstract:- -A wireless sensor network (WSN) consists of such spatially distributed autonomous sensors (a device that is generally able to perform its task without being connected to the interrogation unit) to monitor physical or environmental conditions, such as temperature, sound, pressure, etc. and to cooperatively pass their data through the network to a main location.Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are some of the fastest developing technologies and have many military and commercial applications. The topology of the WSNs can vary from a simple star network to an advanced multi-hop wireless mesh network. In this paper cluster head election is done using fuzzy logic and then on the selected cluster head multi hop technique is adopted to send the data to the base station. The simulation done using MAT Lab clearly shows that using multi hop improves the speed and decreases the consumption of battery power as compared to LEACH OR CHEF mechanism.
