Data Merge based Energy Efficient Routing Algorithm for Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks
Many researchers worked on data aggregation and energy efficiency for Wireless Multimedia sensor networks. Now a days many web and mobile application frameworks are interconnected to get the data from an intended WSN to support the user requirements. These applications request the data from the base station of an intended WSN. The base station has to handle all the requests from various application users. It can forward these requests to specific sensor node to get the data. Multiple requests can be transferred to that sensor node, then sensor node can process those requests and send the replies back to the base station. This causes overhead at that sensor node as well as base station. We proposed a novel data merge based energy efficient routing algorithm (DMEERA) to utilize the bandwidth efficiently and to reduce the overhead on both sensor nodes and basestation. The simulation results shows that the increase of energy saving and network lifetime compared to the state of the art techniques.
