Information fusion is one of the major problems in the Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) where data, image, audio, video can be passed through WSN. For efficient usage sensor node energy is one of critical issue of WSN. Using the mobile agents with cognition can prolong the life time of WSN. The conventional agents are not gaining well throughput because they are not too intelligent to act upon the critical conditions like sudden environment change etc, so to overcome from this problem the BDI (Belief Desire Intention) agents are used instead of conventional agents where BDI agents uses their belief, desire and intentions to gather the information from sensor nodes and send within time to the sink node. BDI are autonomous, social ability, reactiveness, proactivity and the special one is intelligence, it uses these characteristic to fuse the information very accurately and send the fused information to the sink node within time. In this paper we describe the usage of agent technology and BDI architectures for information fusion in WSN.
