Wireless sensor network (WSN) plays a vital part in real time tracking and data collection applications. WSN incorporates a set of numerous sensor nodes (SNs) commonly utilized to observe the target region. The SNs operate using an inbuilt battery and it is not easier to replace or charge it. Therefore, proper utilization of available energy in the SNs is essential to prolong the lifetime of the WSN. In this study, an effective Type-II Fuzzy Logic with Butterfly Optimization Based Route Selection (TFL-BOARS) has been developed for clustered WSN. The TFL-BOARS technique intends to optimally select the cluster heads (CHs) and routes in the clustered WSN. Besides, the TFL-BOARS technique incorporates Type-II Fuzzy Logic (T2FL) technique with distinct input parameters namely residual energy (RE), link quality (LKQ), trust level (TRL), inter-cluster distance (ICD) and node degree (NDE) to select CHs and construct clusters. Also, the butterfly optimization algorithm based route selection (BOARS) technique is derived to select optimal set of routes in the WSN. In addition, the BOARS technique has computed a fitness function using three parameters such as communication cost, distance and delay. In order to demonstrate the improved energy effectiveness and prolonged lifetime of the WSN, a wide-ranging simulation analysis was implemented and the experimental results reported the supremacy of the TFL-BOARS technique.
