Interplay of Communication and Computation Energy Consumption for Low Power Sensor Network Design
The sensor network design approach normally considers the communication energy consumption for evaluating a communication protocol. This is true for the low power devices such as MICAz/MICA2 which do not consume a lot of energy for the data treatment. However, recently developed sensor devices for multimedia applications such as iMote2 do consume considerable amount of energy for data processing. In this paper, the authors consider various scenarios for routing the data in wireless multimedia sensor networks by considering the local design parameters of devices such as PXA27x and beagleboard.
