Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks (WMSN) are new and emerging networks of wirelessly connected devices, which consist of cameras, microphones, infra-red sensors, scalar sensors and others. These networks are fast gaining popularity due to their potential to be incorporated in various applications, such as, traffic monitoring, border surveillance, smart homes, environment and habitat monitoring, to retrieve heterogeneous data from the environment. However, these networks present many challenges as they are highly sensitive to delay and errors. The paper presents a Cross-layer QoS Routing protocol for WMSNs (CR-WMSN) that is aimed at providing soft end-to-end delay guarantees. Evaluation of this protocol shows that it provides better delay guarantees as compared to minimum hop routing protocol.
