Abstract

Mobile agent data aggregation routing forwards mobile agents in wireless sensor network to collect and aggregate data. The key objective of data aggregation routing is to maximise the number of collected data samples at the same time as minimising network resource consumption and data collection delay. This paper proposes a mobile agent routing protocol, called zone-based mobile agent aggregation. This protocol utilises a bottom-up mobile agent migration scheme in which the mobile agents start their journeys from the centre of the event regions to the sink aiming to reduce the MA itinerary cost and delay and increase data aggregation routing accuracy. In addition, the proposed protocol reduces the impact of network architecture, event source distribution model and/or data heterogeneity on the performance of data aggregation routing.
