The paper has a proposal of new compressive sensing and fusion based protocol for UnderwaterWireless Sensor Networks(UWSNs). The offered protocol has the ability to reduce the amount of data which is going to be transmitted. The reduction in packet size would be done by removing the redundant data using the data fusion at intra and inter level i.e. on sensors as well as on acoustic nodes.
However further reduction would also be done using the LZW based compression. The reduction in packet size would improve the QoS parameters of UWSNs as it will not cause congestion at any stage.
