Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are increasingly used in data-intensive applications such as micro-climate monitoring, precision agriculture and audio/video surveillance. A key challenges faced by data-intensive WSNs is to transmit all the data generated with an application's lifetime to the base station despite the fact that sensor nodes have limited power supply. The authors propose using low-cost disposable mobile really and their work in the following aspects it does not require complex motion planning of mobile nodes. They integrate the energy consumption due to both mobility and wireless transmission.
