One of key challenges in deploying large-scale Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is system longevity. In this paper we propose an harvesting aware system of SMSN (Sustainable Mobile Sensor Network) as a way to extend system lifetime. The mobile sensor nodes visit remote energy station to recharge battery when node's energy drains below a threshold level. Our framework consists of energy model, motion control system and data transfer protocol. The simulation result shows the sustainability of our SMSN. Our results along with simulation can be used for certain guideline for realistic development of such systems.
