Aiming at saving energy and maximizing the network life cycle, the multi-node cooperative image acquisition and compression technology in Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks(WMSNs) is studied deeply. The Minimum Energy Image Collection (MEIC) problem for multiple target domains in a certain period of time in the monitoring area is proposed, the integer linear programming for Minimum Energy Image Collection (MEIC) problem is described and proved to be NP complete; then combined with the features of image acquisition of camera node, the Local Camera Coordinative Energy-saving Strategy (LCCES) is proposed, and the performance of the Local Camera Coordinative Energy-saving Strategy (LCCES) is evaluated through a lot of simulation experiments; finally, the LBT-based Multi-node Cooperative Image Compression Scheme (LBT-MCIC) is proposed. The results show that this strategy can effectively reduce the number of active camera nodes in the process of image acquisition, thus reducing the energy consumption of image acquisition. At the same time, it also plays a role in balancing the energy consumption of camera nodes in the network, effectively solves the problem of high cost of common nodes in the image transmission scheme of two-hop cluster structure and has the characteristics of low computational complexity and high quality of reconstructed image.
