Wireless Multimedia Sensor Network (WMSN) is a collection of multimedia sensors embedded with CMOS cameras and Microphones which are wirelessly interconnected devices that are able to retrieve multimedia content such as video and audio streams, still images and scalar sensor data from the environment. To capture the image, video Wireless Multimedia Sensor nodes (WMSn) are to be deployed. Routing in Wireless Sensor Network is an important issue since WMS nodes that senses the data need to be communicated to the base station. The key issues in design of routing protocol in the WMSN are energy efficiency, adaptive routing, multimedia packet scheduling, Quality of Service (QOS), security.
