A Hierarchical Multi-hop Multimedia Routing Protocol for Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks
Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks (WMSNs) play an important role in pervasive and ubiquitous systems. WMSNs promise a wide scope of potential applications in both civilian and military areas, which require visual and audio information such as environmental monitoring, smart parking, traffic control, and other applications for smart cities. The multimedia content in such applications has the potential to enhance the level of collected information, show the real impact of the event and help to detect objects or intruders. However, WMSN applications must assure reliability, scalability, energy-efficiency and quality level (also from the user's point-of-view) to support the transmission of multimedia content.
