Distributed Target Tracking Under Realistic Network Conditions

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Distributed target tracking has been a widely studied problem for different applications, more recently considering distributed particle filter techniques for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). However, the adaptation of distributed tracking filters to sensor networks with limited field-of-view and large raw-data management constraints under realistic networking conditions has not yet received enough attention. In this paper, the authors extend the distributed particle filter formulation and enable its operation in realistic scenarios by introducing a next-hop selection mechanism for the aggregation chain and a target handover strategy that is capable of handling detection misses and target losses.
