The innovation in the world of Wireless communication led to progressive use of tiny and multifunctional sensor nodes. These nodes, being small in size can sense the environment, compute data and communicate to a large range. The energy constraint is one of the major limitations in sensor nodes, hence given major focus. The usage of manifold mobile agents proposed by mobile agent based framework, offers flexible and robust data collection within WSNs. This also provides diverse solutions to energy constraint problems in WSN. This paper proposes multi-agent system based data gathering from the WSN. The mobile agent created in the sink is cloned n-1 times, where n is the number of clusters. The cloned mobile agents travel to their corresponding cluster in a parallel fashion and compute the data for which the event occurs. Finally the computed results are transferred to the sink which sends an alert for the occurred event to the mobile device. The mobile agent computes and transfers only the result minimizing energy consumption. The approach of transferring only the event occurred data also conserves node energy. This paper proposes that the sink monitors any application and when an event is sensed, it is notified to the user via message and call.
