The vision of wireless multimedia sensor networks (WMSNs) is to provide real-time multimedia applications using wireless sensors deployed for long-term usage. Quality of service assurances for both best effort data and real-time multimedia applications introduced new challenges in prioritizing multipath routing protocols in WMSNs. Multipath routing approaches with multiple constraints have received considerable research interest. In this paper, a comprehensive survey of both best effort data and real-time multipath routing protocols for WMSNs is presented. Results of a preliminary investigation into design issues affecting the development of strategic multipath routing protocols that support multimedia data in WMSNs are also presented and discussed from the network application perspective.


Energy-Aware Data Delivery Framework for Safety-Oriented Mobile IoT
Al-Turjman, Fadi (2018-01-01)
The proliferation of wireless multimedia sensor networks has given rise to intelligent transportation systems as a mobile data-sharing model. This vision can be extended under the umbrella of the mobile Internet of Things to include versatile resources, such as smartphones, radio frequency identification tags, and sensors on roads that can be utilized in emergency situations. The facilitation of such a vision faces key challenges in terms of interoperability, resource management and energy consumption. In t...
Automated Moving Object Classification in Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks
Civelek, Muhsin; Yazıcı, Adnan (2017-02-15)
The use of wireless multimedia sensor networks (WMSNs) for surveillance applications has attracted the interest of many researchers. As with traditional sensor networks, it is easy to deploy and operate WMSNs. With inclusion of multimedia devices in wireless sensor networks, it is possible to provide data to users that is more meaningful than that provided by scalar sensor-based systems alone; however, producing, storing, processing, analyzing, and transmitting multimedia data in sensor networks requires co...
An Analysis for the Correlation of Coverage and Spatial Resolution for Wireless Sensor Networks
Tomur, Emrah; Erten, Y. Murat (2007-12-10)
In this study, we investigate the interactions between coverage and spatial resolution for cluster-based wireless sensor networks (WSN). We present an approximate probabilistic analysis for the mentioned correlation and verify this analysis by simulation. Our analysis includes the k-coverage case.
An Efficient Fuzzy Fusion-Based Framework for Surveillance Applications in Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks
Sert, Seyyit Alper; Yazıcı, Adnan; Coşar, Ahmet; Yilmazer, Cengiz (2014-08-08)
This study is focused on a new approach for addressing the trade-off between accuracy and energy-efficiency of Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks. Although a number of previous studies have focused on various special topics in Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks in detail, to best of our knowledge, none presents a fuzzy multi-modal data fusion system, which is light-weight and provides a high accuracy ratio. Especially, multi-modal data fusion targeting surveillance applications make it inevitable to work ...
Analysis and modeling of routing and security problems in wireless sensor networks with mathematical programming
İncebacak, Davut; Baykal, Nazife; Bıçakcı, Kemal; Department of Information Systems (2013)
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are composed of battery powered small sensor nodes with limited processing, memory and energy resources. Self organization property together with infrastructureless characteristics of WSNs make them favorable solutions for many applications. Algorithms and protocols developed for WSNs must consider the characteristics and constraints of WSNs but since battery replenishment is not possible or highly challenging for sensor nodes, one of the major concerns in designing network p...
