A network of sensors can be used to obtain state based data from the area in which they are deployed. To reduce costs, the data sent via intermediate sensors to a sink are often aggregated. In this letter, we introduce Self-Construction of Aggregation Tree (SCAT) scheme which uses a novel data aggregation scheme utilizing the knowledge of the mobile node and the infrastructure (static node tree) in gathering the data from the mobile node. The static nodes can construct a near- optimal aggregation tree by themselves, using the knowledge of the mobile node, which is a process similar to forming the centralized aggregation tree.
