Efficient target tracking applications require active sensor nodes to track a cluster of moving targets. Clustering could lead to significant cost improvement as compared to tracking individual targets. This paper presents accurate clustering of targets for both coherent and incoherent movement patterns. The authors propose a novel clustering algorithm that utilises an implicit dynamic time frame to assess the relational history of targets in creating a weighted graph of connected components. The proposed algorithm employs key features of localisation algorithms in target tracking, namely, estimated current and predicted locations to determine the relational directions and distances of moving targets.
