Multi mobile agents based on data collection and aggregations have proved their effective in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). However, the way in which these agents are deployed must be intelligently planned and should be adapted to the characteristics of wireless sensor networks. While most existing studies are based on the algorithms of itinerary planning for multiple agents i.e. determining the number of Mobile Agents (MAs) to be deployed, how to group source nodes for each MA, attributing the itinerary of each MA for its source nodes. These algorithms determine the efficiency or effectiveness of aggregation.
