Objectives: Wireless multimedia sensor network is one of the important sensors used to sense and transfer multimedia data in the network topology. We know that the multimedia data occupies more memory. Methods: The existing system of communication topology took the Quality of Service (QoS) as a metric and met the metrics like reliability, throughput and error rates. They used routing protocols like Multi-path and Multi-speed (MMSPEED) and Energy aware Multi-path and Multi-speed (EAMMSPEED) for the transmission of multimedia data. The data is prioritized which based on the important parts and they are sent through the network via multi-path routing. But during high traffic loads the multi-path routing does not fulfil communications effectively. Findings: A novel approach is employed to reduce the traffic loads by using multi-path routing based on clustering. Clustering technique is suitable for static network. The implementing technique will focusing on how to reduce the traffic loads in the network and also how to make the consumption of energy in further efficient manner. With the help of clustering technique, we can able to satisfy the desired QoS which effectively needed. Applications: Nowadays mostly wireless multimedia sensor networks are deployed to measure the temperature, humidity, pressure. It is also used in military and civil applications.
