MEMS: Detection and Tracking of Mobile Events Using Mobile Sensors

With the advances in sensing, communication, and computation, there is an increasing need to track mobile events such as air pollutant diffusion, toxic gas leakage, or wildfire spreading using mobile sensors such as robots. Lots of existing work use control theory to plan the path of mobile sensors by assuming that the event evolution is known in advance. This assumption has severely limited the applicability of existing approaches. In this paper, the authors aim to design detection and tracking approach that is capable of identifying multiple events with dynamic event signatures and providing event evolution history that may include event merge, split, create and destroy.
