Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) has emerged as one of the key growth areas for wireless networking and computing technologies. Usually in sensor networking, traditional client-server computing architecture is employed where data at multiple nodes is transferred to a processing element. In the mobile-agent based computing paradigm, the motto is to move the computation to the data rather than data to the computation. Using this paradigm, the communication cost, especially over low bandwidth links is greatly reduced.
