Abstract

Wireless sensor networks make possible many new applications in a wide range of application domains. One of the primary applications of such networks is the detection and tracking of continuously moving objects, such as wild fires, biochemical materials, and so forth. This study supports such applications by developing a Continuous Object Detection and tracking Algorithm, designated as CODA, based on a hybrid static/dynamic clustering technique. The CODA mechanism enables each sensor node to detect and track the moving boundaries of objects in the sensing field. The numerical results obtained using a Qualnet simulator confirm the effectiveness and robustness of the proposed approach.
