Stream Multicasting in Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks
Computer Engineering Department
In recent years, the interest in the wireless sensor networks has grown and resulted in integration of low-power wireless technologies with cameras and microphones enabling video and audio retrieval besides measuring physical phenomena. These sensor networks are called Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks (WMSN) and are still constrained in terms of battery, memory and achievable data rate. Hence delivering multimedia content in such an environment has become a new research challenge. New approaches have to be adapted to both wireless sensor networks and delivery of large data streams, especially for multicasting purposes. Existing multicast solutions provide energy efficiency for low-bandwidth and delay-tolerant data streams. The aim of this work is to provide a multicasting protocol considering delay and congestion in the network besides energy efficiency.
