Sensor networks are large-scale distributed embedded systems composed of a large number of small-sized, low-cost, and low-power devices that integrate sensor, actuators, wireless communication and microprocessor. Sensor networks function as a key infrastructure for a broad range of applications including precision agriculture, intelligent highway system, emergent disaster recovery and surveillance. Many sensor networks such as habit monitoring and intruder tracking need to handle physical entities that move in the environment. Only sensors which are close to an interesting physical entity should participate in the aggregations of data associated with the entity as activating sensors that are far away wastes precious energy without improving sensing fidelity.
