In this paper, we propose a new congestion control scheme to minimize data loss and maintain data quality in wireless multimedia sensor networks. The proposed scheme extracts and transfers dynamic regions by considering monitoring characteristics over multimedia sensor network environments to reduce the transferred data. Furthermore, it can reduce the packet size by deleting and transferring low-priority bit data by considering multimedia data characteristics during congestion situations to minimize packet loss. To show the superiority of the proposed scheme, we compare it with the existing congestion control schemes through simulation.
