Improvised Scheme for Wireless Sensor Tracking Using Triangulation Mathematical Mode

Authors(3) :-Rajasekar. B, T. Sathish Kumar, R. Rajesh

Target Tracking is an important problem in sensor networks, where it dictates how accurate a targets position can be measured. In response to the recent flow of interest in mobile sensor applications, this term paper studies the target tracking problems in a mobile sensor network (MSN), where it is understand that mobility can be exploited to develop the tracking resolution. This problem becomes mostly challenging given the mobility of both sensors and targets, in which the trajectory of sensors and targets need to be captured. We derive the inherent relationship between the tracking resolution and a set of fundamental system parameters including sensor density, sensing range, sensor and target mobility. We investigate the correlation and sensitivity from a set of system parameters and we derive the minimum number of mobile sensors that are required to maintain the resolution for target tracking in an MSN. The simulation results express that the tracking performance can be better by an order of magnitude with the same number of sensors when compared with that of the still sensor environment.
