The advances in camera technology and wireless sensor network (WSN) have encouraged the development of wireless multimedia sensor network (WMSN), which can collect multimedia data from its surrounding environment. Multimedia data such as video, image and audio is larger in volume than scalar data such as temperature, pressure and humidity. Larger size of multimedia data makes it a challenging issue in battery-limited sensor network. Thus to transmit multimedia data, more energy is required

In this paper, we apply the energy efficient multimedia image fusion technique for WMSN. Multimedia image fusion eliminates the redundant data, improves the quality of multimedia data and enhances the lifetime of WMNS.
