Tracking mobile targets using wireless sensor networks is a potential surveillance application of practical importance suitable for military as well as civilian fields. It can be used for guiding robots in hard to reach areas e.g. nuclear power plants etc. The capabilities of a simple target tracking solution can be enhanced by providing guidance information for a friendly object to reach the maneuvering adversary target. This paper presents a practical architecture for target tracking using wireless sensor network by providing solutions to key components like node localization, time synchronization, target detection and tracking.
