Hence, for remote applications of WVSN, the placement of battery operated VSN is essential.
The energy budget and wireless communication are the major constraints of remote applications of WVSN.

WVSNs are networks of wirelessly interconnected devices equipped with camera, enabling the retrieval of video and audio streams, still images, and scalar sensor data.
Transmit image in wireless WVSN is a challenging issue because the bandwidth and frequency spectrum are limited resources in wireless WVSN.
(3) Power-efficient design: due to the fact that most of the sensor nodes are powered by the battery and it is unlikely to exchange battery at the depleted sensor node, power-efficient design is crucial to prolong the life of WSN and WVSN. In WSN, data aggregation scheme  could not only combine the data coming from different sources to eliminate the redundancy, but also minimize the total number of transmissions.

There are many research works attempting to solve the energy problems of WVSN systems.
Different solutions are proposed by researchers for WVSN
Optimization in both computation and communication energy consumption of the VSN is required for the energy constrained outdoor embedded applications of Wireless Visual Sensor Networks (WVSN
The remainder of this paper is organized as follows: In section 2, we briefly review the reference architecture and service scenario of WVSN
using smartphones and a fast algorithm for key frame extraction that can be used for WVSN
In order to minimize data transmissions for building a global inference in a WVSN
, we need to convert the logical topology from a broadcasting/multicasting network to a unicasting network.
