Efficient Monitoring Strategy for Active Environments
The new advances in sensor device technologies make Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) effective and economically viable solutions for a large variety of applications. Extensive research efforts have been devoted to various WSN research topics, such as target tracking, data collection and dissemination, localization, and sensing. In this paper, the authors focus on target tracking problems using WSN - one of the most challenging WSN research topics because of certain real-time constraints, energy consumption, and detection accuracy. They propose an intelligent and independent decision making strategy for sensors to monitor targets in an active environment.
