Abstract

Energy Efficient and reliable data dissemination in wireless sensor network is an important research issue since the network consists of low cost nodes with limited resources. Mobile agent-based data dissemination (MADD) approach that deploys multiple mobile agents for the data gathering task is a flexible, robust, and distributed solution to the data dissemination problem in wireless sensor networks. However the manners in which mobile agents follow the itineraries (order of visited sensor nodes) have an impact on the efficiency of the data gathering. In this paper, we propose a multiple mobile agents with dynamic itineraries based data dissemination (MMADIDD) protocol that not only adapts to unexpected node failures but also prolongs the network lifetime.
