In wireless sensor network the most challenging task is to reduce energy consumption. Due to resource restricted sensor nodes, it is valuable to reduce the amount of data transmission so that the average sensor lifetime and the overall bandwidth utilization are improved. The main goal of data collection algorithms is to gather and aggregate data in an energy efficient manner so that network lifetime is enhanced. In this paper, to reduce energy consumption, the authors discuss the data collection approaches and various performance measures of the data collection in the network.
