QoS Strategies for Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks with Energy- Efficient Routing Techniques & QoS Assurances

2021 International journal for innovative engineering and management research  
In recent years, for delivering multimedia information such as images and videos, wireless multimedia sensor networks (WMSNs) have emerged as an outstanding technique. Due to the fast Advancements in sensor technology and the availability of low-cost hardware, the development of Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks (WMSNs) has emerged. WMSNs are composed of resourceconstrained wireless nodes through which both the scalar data and multimedia data (i.e., audio, still images, and video) can be

To tackle these challenges, different authors developed different methods. In this paper, we have surveyed all such kinds of methods. Initially, we study the basic architecture of multimedia senor nodes followed by the characteristics and applications of WMSNs. Next, we have conducted a detailed survey over different methods and all those methods are segregated into three categories. Under the segregation, we have considered different aspects and segregated them as Data-Aware methods, QoS Aware methods, and Energy-Aware methods. In the end, we also summarized the existing solutions and outlined several pros and cons. In this paper, recent developments in techniques for designing highly energy-efficient and QoScapable WMSNs are surveyed.
