Data Aggregation in Wireless Multimedia Sensor Network: A Survey

Rajat Singhal, Pancham Singh, Pulkit Agarwal, Shashank Awasthi



Wireless Multimedia Sensor Network (WMSN) is a new, rapidly developing sensor network having scope beyond our understanding. It basically comprises sensor nodes embedded with cameras, microphones, and other sensors producing multimedia content. As the resources are limited, minimizing the volume of data traffic in sensor networks becomes critical and crucial both at the same time, in order to tackle this problem the reduction in amount of data required to be sent to the base station and in the redundant data transmission, is something that is desired so as to increase the average sensor lifetime and improve the overall bandwidth utilization. Less power is required by sensor nodes in processing data as compared to that in transmitting it. Therefore, it is preferred that almost all of the in-network processing is done inside the network and the packet size is reduced considerably, this adds to the increase in complexity and thus plight of application developers.
