Target tracking is one of the applications of Mobile Sensor Networks. Mobility management is the important parameter that affects the performance and lifetime of the Mobile sensor networks. So the authors need to manage the mobility in a controlled manner. Existing methods attempt to achieve these requirements for controlled mobility single target tracking only. In this paper, they propose a Multi-Target Tracking method using Ant Colony Optimization to satisfy these requirements. In this proposed method, targets current position values are estimated at every time step. Then, predicting the next position value of each target by using the previous time-step estimated values.
