In this paper, the authors will present a state of the art in using multi-agent technology for wireless sensor networks where the main goal is the conception of software architecture and the network organization dedicated to optimization, performance analysis, and monitoring. Then, they explore in particular, the issues of topology control and works in this field and the use of multi-agent systems. Finally, they will propose an agent based algorithm for fault tolerance and topology control in a wireless sensor network. Their proposal consists to embed an agent at each node that is responsible for selecting its parent node or the next hop to the sink when transferring packets.
