Wireless multimedia sensor network is well-known for its constraints in the field of multimedia processing in terms of processing power, bandwidth etc. Data processing is always a challenge in such network. Exploiting low overhead compression accompanied by proper routing and aggregation is a challenge for such energy starved multihop network. In this paper, we propose an efficient path merging protocol for wireless multimedia sensor network with randomly deployed nodes. Any partial discrete wavelet transform based compression technique can be plugged into this path merging protocol to reduce redundant data transmission in a significant manner by appropriate aggregation of data packets from merging paths. The design feasibility and the simulation results prove supremacy of our protocol over state-of-the-art competing schemes in terms of maintaining a trade-off between energy consumption and reconstruction quality.
