SenSearch: GPS and Witness Assisted Tracking for Delay Tolerant Sensor Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper describes the design, implementation and performance evaluation of SenSearch, an outdoors, GPS assisted personnel tracking system using MICA motes. SenSearch is a mobile wireless ad-hoc network comprised of sensor nodes worn by users. These nodes store and forward information about the location of other nodes in an environment that lacks communication infrastructure. A key feature of SenSearch is that it does not require a continuously connected network for its operation. It is designed for a delay tolerant network that provides only occasional connectivity between nodes.
