Visual sensor network is one of the emerging technologies which will have impact on users' daily life in near future. These wireless sensor nodes are expected to vastly out number conventional computer hosts as the authors see them today, but their strict resource constraints are unlike other technologies already common to the Internet. As wireless visual sensor network research took off, many in the field eschewed the use of IP as inadequate and in contradiction to the needs of wireless sensor networking. Since then, the field has matured and IP has evolved.
