Wireless sensor networks are useful for streaming multimedia in infrastructure-free and hazardous environments. However, these networks are quite different from their wired counterpart and are composed of nodes with constrained bandwidth and energy. Multiple-path transmission is one of the methods for ensuring QoS routing in both wired and wireless environment. Directed diffusion, a well known wireless sensor network protocol, only routes packets through a single path, which barely meets the… 

Adaptive Multipath Data Transfer in Multimedia Wireless Sensor Networks

An improvement over the MPDT is considered by adaptively changing the number of multiple paths to minimize packet loss on one hand and to increase the network lifetime on the other.

Highly Reliable and Load-balancing Routing Protocol for the Wireless Sensor Network

This thesis proposes a highly reliable and load-balancing routing protocol for the wireless sensor network through finding multiple node-disjoint paths and through removing the intermediate node’s routing table overhead by computing the entire path from the sink to the destination.

Multipath Routing in Wireless Sensor Networks: Survey and Research Challenges

A comprehensive taxonomy on the existing multipath routing protocols, which are especially designed for wireless sensor networks, and highlights the primary motivation behind the development of each protocol category and explains the operation of different protocols in detail, with emphasis on their advantages and disadvantages.

Streaming multimedia over WMSNs: an online multipath routing protocol

Streaming Multimedia over WMSNs : An Online Routing Protocol

Performance comparison of the proposed protocol with Two-Phase Geographical Greedy Forwarding (TPGF) and Greedy Perimeter Stateless Routing (GPSR) shows that they maximize the overall network lifespan by not draining energy from some specific nodes, provide quality of service delivery for video streams by influencing the best node along the route to destination, and scale better in densely deployed wireless sensors network.

Multisource Adaptive Data Distribution and Routing in Wireless Sensor Networks

An adaptive framework in which multiple sources transmit data simultaneously with minimal end-to-end data delivery time and minimal energy consumption is proposed besides ensuring that congestion remains at an optimum low so that minimal number of data packets are dropped.

This work proposes an on-demand routing scheme called split multipath routing (SMR) that establishes and utilizes multiple routes of maximally disjoint paths and uses a per-packet allocation scheme to distribute data packets into multiple paths of active sessions.

A high-throughput path metric for multi-hop wireless routing

Measurements taken from a 29-node 802.11b test-bed demonstrate the poor performance of minimum hop-count, illustrate the causes of that poor performance, and confirm that ETX improves performance.

Comparison of routing metrics for static multi-hop wireless networks

A detailed, empirical evaluation of the performance of three link-quality metrics---ETX, per-hop RTT, andper-hop packet pair---and compare them against minimum hop count finds that the ETX metric has the best performance when all nodes are stationary and the hop-count metric outperforms all of the link- quality metrics in a scenario where the sender is mobile.

Directed diffusion for wireless sensor networking

The use of directed diffusion for a simple remote-surveillance sensor network analytically and experimentally indicates that directed diffusion can achieve significant energy savings and can outperform idealized traditional schemes (e.g., omniscient multicast) under the investigated scenarios.

A framework for reliable routing in mobile ad hoc networks

A modified version of the popular AODV protocol that allows us to discover multiple node-disjoint paths from a source to a destination and shows that the probability of establishing a reliable path between a random source and destination pair increases considerably even with a low percentage of reliable nodes.

Dynamic Source Routing in Ad Hoc Wireless Networks

This paper presents a protocol for routing in ad hoc networks that uses dynamic source routing that adapts quickly to routing changes when host movement is frequent, yet requires little or no overhead during periods in which hosts move less frequently.
