Data collection is a fundamental task in wireless sensor network. In wireless sensor networks, collecting large amount of data directly from a node may cause several problems. The freshness of data depends on the data collection process is as much faster as possible. Many of the data collection algorithms introduced so far did not concentrate on the requirements and complex scenarios of wireless sensor network. In this paper, the basic idea about different data collection algorithms are described and one of the novel techniques called Maximum Amount Shortest Path (MASP) is proposed to overcome the issue in the data aggregation algorithm.
