A Wireless Multimedia Sensor Network (WMSN) is an emerging networking paradigm that allows retrieving video and audio streams, still images, and generic sensing data. Different from conventional wireless sensor networks, a WMSN requires higher network bandwidth and throughput to deliver multimedia contents effectively using energy-constrained devices. In this paper, we propose a clustered on-demand multi-channel MAC protocol (COM-MAQ) to support energy-efficient, high- throughput, and reliable… CONTINUE READING
