Abstract

Present day requirements of high quality audio and video surveillance has instigated research interests in wireless multimedia sensor networks (WMSN). In order for the WMSN to achieve trademark performance in audio and video surveillance applications, certain design requirements must be met. In this work, we identify vital design issues affecting diversity gain in conditions especially, where channel fading characteristics fluctuate rapidly. We apply the cooperative communication technique in WMSN to create a framework that optimizes diversity gain in an environment where channel state information (CSI) is unknown. We then discuss promising research directions for optimizing diversity gain and noncoherent communication efficiency in cooperative WMSN.
