Fault Tolerant Target Localization and Tracking in Wireless Sensor Networks Using Binary Data
In this paper, the authors investigate the use of a sensor network for localizing and tracking a moving target using only binary data. Due to the simple nature of the sensor nodes, sensing can be tampered (accidentally or maliciously), resulting in a significant number of sensor nodes reporting erroneous observations. Therefore, it is essential that any event tracking algorithm used in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) exhibits fault tolerant behavior in order to tolerate a number of misbehaving nodes. SNAP (Subtract on Negative Add on Positive), is a simple event localization algorithm designed for WSNs applications that exhibits this fault tolerant behavior.
