Abstract—Wireless camera sensor networks have been employed for different types of visual monitoring applications, promoting innovative services for Internet of Things scenarios and smart cities. In this context, in order to better support the validation procedures of visual sensor networks, we implement various simulation cases aimed at resource consumption measurement of intermediate nodes in multi-hop networks. Moreover, we also implement a routing protocol specially conceived for image communication, and verifications are performed for non compressed and compressed TiBS and JPEG* images. Our early results illustrate the benefits of performing image compression for resource savings, as well as the effectiveness of robust error resilient techniques to face packet losses.
