Received signal strength indication based clustering and aggregating data using Q-learning in mobile Ad Hoc network

Surya Narayana Reddy, Jitendranath Mungara


Clustering is a significant idea for extending the scalability and enhancing the energy in the mobile ad-hoc network (MANET). In addition, the clustering concept is used to diminishes the cost of communication. The re-clustering procedure makes expensive, and frequent re-clustering procedure makes extra routing overhead and extra energy utilization. To solve these issues, received signal strength indication (RSSI) based clustering and aggregating data (RCAD) using Q-learning in MANET is proposed. In this approach, we build the clusters by node RSSI. The fuzzy logic system (FLS) is used to select the cluster head (CH) by the node mobility and node utilization energy. Q-learning-based data-aggregation for improving mobile node routing efficiency in MANET. Here, we can find an optimum next-hop node utilizing their Q-values established on the rewards (RD). Since the RD rule is used to decide the best solution for the Q-learning technique. This RD is computed by present bandwidth (PB), present energy (PE), present packet delivery (PDD), and hop count (HC) parameter for selecting the data aggregator from sender to receiver. The experimental outcomes illustrate that the RCAD approach increases 155 CH round and raises 24% cluster lifetime in the MANET.
