Abstract: Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks (WMSNs) consists of set of sensor nodes which can capture multimedia data as well as scalar data from the target region and transmit to the base station. The type and nature of traffic generated in WMSNs leads to congestion and it can cause substantial loss of data packets, reduced throughput and wastage of energy. In order to overcome the challenge, a cross layer protocol which adjusts the rate of transmission is proposed in this paper. As per the information provided by the MAC layer regarding buffer availability and channel traffic condition, the proposed protocol adjusts the channel access along with transmission rate of the nodes. The simulation results reveal that the proposed protocol performs better than the existing protocols with respect to packet loss, throughput and energy.
