Power management is a challenging factor in wireless sensor networks and the radio is a major contributor to overall power consumption of a sensor node. So to reduce the power consumption of a node, it is essential to minimize the idle listening of the radio by keeping it to sleep mode when no communication takes place with it. This paper is mainly focused on reducing the idle listening of the radio by using an algorithm called power saving algorithm. In this paper, this algorithm is applied for object tracking system using RFID.
