Optimization of energy usage in Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks (WMSN) was an active research field for the last decades and various approaches have been explored. In fact, a well-designed energy consumption model is the foundation for developing and evaluating a power management scheme in network of energy constrained devices such as WSN. Reducing power consumption of wireless networks has become a major goal in designing modern multimedia wireless systems. In an effort to reduce power consumption, the issue of scheduling real-time messages in multimedia wireless networks subject to both timing and power constraints.
