Multimedia communication in wireless sensor networks
Abstract-- The technological advances in Micro ElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS) and wireless communications have enabled the realization of wireless sensor networks (WSN) comprised of large number of low-cost, low-power, multifunctional sensor nodes. These tiny sensor nodes communicate in short distances and collaboratively work toward fulfilling the applicationspecific objectives of WSN. However, realization of wide range of envisioned WSN applications necessitates effective communication protocols which can address the unique challenges posed by the WSN paradigm. Since many of these envisioned applications may also involve in collecting information in the form of multimedia such as audio, image, and video; additional challenges due to the unique requirements of multimedia delivery over WSN, e.g., diverse reliability requirements, time-constraints, high bandwidth demands, must be addressed as well. Thus far, vast majority of the research efforts has been focused on addressing the prob...
