Environment-Aware CMT for Efficient Video Delivery in Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks

Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks (WMSNs) have gained significant attention with capabilities of retrieving video and audio streams, still images, and scalar sensor data but with challenge of high data loss. As more and more wireless devices are equipped with multiple network interfaces, multimedia delivery over multipath has been cognized as a more promising approach in wireless transmission. In this paper, based on the Concurrent Multipath Transfer (CMT) extension for Stream Control Transport Protocol (SCTP), the authors propose a novel environment-aware CMT (e-CMT) to overcome the high data loss challenge, as well as "A hot potato" congestion problem in wireless transmission.
