Abstract

A multiview image compression framework for the Wireless Multimedia Sensor Network (WMSN) based on image stitching and SPIHT coding is proposed. This framework is designed to work with the mesh network topology that is very robust. In this framework, the images taken by neighboring sensors are stitched together with an image stitching technique to remove the overlap redundancy. The image stitching process will be carried out in certain intermediate nodes along the way towards a centralized decoder. This will help to conserve more power since the amount of data to be transmitted is reduced. In addition, the tree structure adapted by SPIHT is modified to improve the flexibility in coding the stitched image. Simulation results show that the use of image stitching with SPIHT coding can greatly remove the overlap and spatial redundancy.
