Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) has enhanced capabilities and huge applicability in many fields like military, environmental studies, medical and many more. WSN comprises of sensor nodes distributed spatially to accumulate and transmit measurements from environment through radio communication. It utilizes energy for all its functionality (sensing, processing and transmission) but energy utilization in case of transmission activity is more. So, it opens a door towards the research which is done in concern of reducing the energy consumption of WSN by using different approaches. Data compression can work effectively in this regards and it deals with reducing the amount of data to be transmitted before transmission to the sink in WSN. Here proposed compression algorithm i.e. Energy Efficient Modified Deflate (EEMD) along with fuzzy logic works effectively to save the energy of WSN.
