Error Correction Control, IEEE802.15.4, Image Transfer, Wireless Sensor Network


Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) has been highly considered as an alternative for multimedia transmission. However, there are not so many research reports which discuss about advances in images transmission using WSN. One of important considerations in image transmission is the capability of a system to provide quality retaining as well as reliable transfer scheme. This issue arises since image data is more sensitive to erroneous wireless channel rather than scalar sensor data. To counter this problem, utilization of Error Control Coding (ECC) is highly considered. In this paper, the use of ECC in WSN is discussed and the system performances based on simulation for of uncoded and coded system are presented. The system to evaluate ECC in real time is also discussed and some important steps which based on literature review compilation are drawn at the end of this paper
