In wireless sensor networks data aggregation with hundreds and thousands of sensor nodes is very complex task. Recently, mobile agents have been proposed for efficient data dissemination in sensor networks. In the traditional client/server based computing architecture, data is collected from multiple sources and forwarded to destination for further processing. It requires high bandwidth, whereas in the mobile agent is a task specific executable code traverses to the relevant source for gathering data. It reduces communication overhead, reduce cost, low bandwidth. Agents have capability to perform task for multiple applications. It will send only useful information to destination node.
