In wireless sensor networks, data aggregation is critical to network lifetime. It implies that data will be processed in an efficient flow from multiple sources to a specific node named sink. However, there are trade-offs for fusing multisensor data and creating a path between source and sink that increase the likelihood of aggregation. In this work, we propose a decentralized mechanism using parametric-based techniques, such as Bayesian Inference and Dempster-Shafer Method, for data
