Executive Summary

Recent technological breakthroughs in ultra-high integration and low-power electronics have enabled the development of tiny battery-operated sensors. The signal processing and communication activities are the main consumers of sensor's energy. Since sensors are battery-operated, keeping the sensor active all the time will limit the battery's lifetime. Therefore, optimal organization and management of the sensor network is crucial in order to perform the desired function with an acceptable level of quality and to maintain sufficient sensor energy for the required mission. Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks (WMSN) are a new and emerging type of sensor networks producing multimedia content. These networks have the potential to enable a large class of applications.
