Wireless multimedia sensor network (WMSN) uses multimedia nodes to sense the area that are uncorrelated to the areas sensed by the neighboring sensors. Because of the extensive amount of data produced in wireless multimedia sensor network, clustering schemes eligible in wireless sensor network are not suitable for WMSN. For this very purpose, a number of clustering schemes are available in the literature and a clustering scheme based on overlapping FoVs of multimedia nodes is one of them. This paper analyzes the formation of obstructed clusters because of the obstacle encountered by the node as it is an inherent consideration to be brought while designing a routing scheme in WMSN.
