The popularity of multimedia applications are growing day-by-day. Emerging Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC) and Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks (MCC-WMSNs) help to work efficiently with these multimedia applications. The advantage of integrating MCC with WMSNs is that the data gathered by sensor nodes can be accessible from anywhere and at anytime by the users. In this context, there exists several issues such as battery life of the multimedia sensors, processing power, and storage etc. To solve these problems, in this work a MCC-WMSNs integration technique is proposed by using a cloudlets based integration algorithm named as CLIW which mainly works with CLIW-1 and CLIW-2 schemes where both the schemes focus on minimizing energy consumption. The simulation results indicate that CLIW-1 and CLIW-2 schemes are able to prolong the network lifetime of integrated WMSNs.
