Target Tracking With QoS Support in Large Wireless Sensor Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Quality of Service (QoS) is important in the application of target tracking in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). When a target appears, it will trigger an event from one or more sensors. A target can only be accurately detected if a certain number of event packets are received by the sink in a predetermined detection time interval. In this paper, they propose a buffer management scheme based on event ordering to achieve QoS. They also propose a Directional QoS-aware Routing Protocol (DQRP) for the dissemination of the event ordering list. After the dissemination, a priority queue buffer management scheme is used to ensure QoS.
