Abstract

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) is formerly created to support text-based data communication. However, by improving link level mechanism of WSN with Error Control Codng (ECC), reliable multimedia transmission could be realized. This paper addresses the performance issue of transferring multimedia data, particularly still image data, using real sensor motes platform. An X-ray image is transferred from one mote to other mote in one hop scenario. Forward Error Correction (FEC) and interleaving technique are used to design the code that capable of handling both erasure and noise in the received packet. The results show that erasure code can effectively combat the effect of random noise in one packet despite its number as well as recover small quantity of lost packet. Fdermore, the scheme can increase the image PSNR (Peak Signal to Noise Ratio) up to 18.41 dB as compared to the uncoded counterpart
