Now a day’s mobility in sink has been renowned by the researchers. In normal conditions the data is collected by the sink with single or multi hop structure. A concept is introduced for sink with the mobility. A lot of research is going on in the field of data collection using mobile sink. The researchers talked about sink mobility where the sink is moving in the specified area and get the data from the sensor node. For collecting the data from the sensor node the mobile sink may or may not take different path on each journey. If route is not fixed then path should be calculated which should be a shortest path .For data collection methods it may use single sink or multi sink. Sink mobility basically focuses on various factors like energy consumption, life time of the network, cost of the network , hotspot problem etc .This paper contains a survey of different methods used for data collection using mobile sink.
