Vol. 18  No. 10  pp. 105-112


With the rapid development of MEMS technology, it has become possible that sensor networks can be used in wide range of applications. One of the most important applications is continuous object tracking in wireless sensor networks. In continuous object tracking, fundamentally it’s the tracking objects i.e. forest fire or oil spill (phenomenon), which is very challenging because a lot of sensor nodes participate in sensing and communication. In continuous object tracking, the sensing range is an important aspect which affects the performance of object tracking process. In this paper, we discussed sensing a range of sensor nodes, deployment of sensor nodes, and speed of the continuous object (phenomenon) during object tracking. Through the simulated experiments, we exhibit, how the sensing range of sensor nodes, deployment of the sensor nodes and speed of the object make affect the tracking accuracy and network performance.
