A Survey on Mobile Agent Itinerary Planning in Wireless Sensor Networks

It has been proven recently that using Mobile Agent (MA) in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) can drastically help to obtain the flexibility of application-aware deployment. Normally, in any MA based sensor network, it is an important research issue to find out an optimal itinerary for the MA in order to achieve efficient and effective data collection from multiple sensory data source nodes. In this paper, the authors firstly investigate a number of conventional single MA itinerary planning based schemes, and then indicate some shortcomings of these schemes, since only one MA is used by them
