Abstract: In the modern era, data redundancy has become one among the predominant ultimatums encountered in Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks (WMSNs), which occurs because of event information reporting through the scalars residing at the superimposing zones of field of views (FoVs) of multiple camera sensors. As a result, same data is transferred many times, thus leading to redundancy in data transfer. Therefore, the aim is to select the representatives of scalar sensors called scalar premiers (SPs) that can report the event information in lieu of all the scalars while diminishing the redundant data transfer and improving the event coverage. We have proffered a pentagonal scheme of SP selection that chooses five SPs in each of the virtual compartments of the monitored zone efficiently. The chosen SPs operate as nominee of scalars for event information transmittal. Extensive experiments have been accomplished to affirm the efficiency of our proffered method. We changed the number of cameras deployed (noc) and the number of scalars deployed (nos). The results attained from the experimental studies in terms of number of camera sensors activated (nca), coverage ratio (cr), redundancy ratio (rr), event loss ratio (elr) and energy expenditure for camera actuation (eeca) assert the superiority of our profferred approach over existing approaches.
