Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks (WMSNs), is a network of sensors which are limited in terms of computational, memory, bandwidth, and battery capability. Multimedia transmission over WSN requires certain Qos guarantees such as huge amount of bandwidth, strict delay and lower loss ratio, which makes transmitting multimedia content over it, is a challenging problem. Recently adopting cross-layer design in WMSNs proved to be a promising approach, which improves quality of service of WSN under various operational conditions. In this work, an energy aware framework for transmitting multimedia content over WSN (ECWMSN) is presented, where packet and path scheduling were introduced, so that It adaptably selects optimum video encoding parameters at application layer according to current wireless channel state, and schedules packets according to its type to drop less important packets in case of network congestion. Finally, path scheduling is introduced so that different packets types/priority is routed through suitable path with suitable Qos taking into consideration the network lifetime. Simulation results show that ECWMSN optimizes video quality and prolongs network lifetime.
