Information Content-Based Sensor Selection and

Transmission Power Adjustment for Collaborative

Target Tracking


For target tracking applications, wireless sensor nodes provide

accurate information since they can be deployed and operated near
the phenomenon. These sensing devices have the opportunity of
collaboration among themselves to improve the target localization
and tracking accuracies. An energy-efficient collaborative target
tracking paradigm is developed for wireless sensor networks
(WSNs). In addition, a novel approach to energy savings in
WSNs is devised in the information-controlled transmission power
(ICTP) adjustment, where nodes with more information use higher
transmission powers than those that are less informative to share
their target state information with the neighboring nodes.

Algorithm / Technique used:

ICTP Method.
Algorithm Description:
The ICTP scheme is embodied in the power adjustment logic
module in which a node consults the mutual information list index
of the sensor node and the preset power adjustment pattern, and
subsequently, decides on the transmission power for
communicating its information state and information matrix
denominations to the network.

Existing System:

Target tracking sensor networks monitor and track the movement

of a target object. Energy management in these sensor networks is
crucial to prolong the network lifetime. Protocol EST (energy
saving schedule for target tracking sensor networks) that provides
a dynamic sleep schedule for the radios such that maximum energy
is saved without affecting the sensors' activities. When there is no
target, the communication modules of sensor nodes are put into
sleep using a static schedule, except the border nodes. Interior
nodes do not perform the sensing activity in the surveillance state.
If a target arrives, the sleep schedule for the radios is changed
dynamically in order to send the arrival message to neighboring
sensors. By receiving the arrival message, the sleeping neighbor
nodes start sensing. The objectives of our protocol are to (1)
balance the lifetime of all the sensor nodes in the network to
increase the network lifetime (2) reduce the energy consumption
by activating the sensors only when the target arrives in that

Proposed System:

A mutual-information-based sensor selection (MISS) algorithm is

adopted for participation in the fusion process. MISS allows the
sensor nodes with the highest mutual information about the target
state to transmit data so that the energy consumption is reduced
while the desired target position estimation accuracy is met.

Module Description:

1. Networking Module.
Client-server computing or networking is a distributed application
architecture that partitions tasks or workloads between service providers
(servers) and service requesters, called clients. Often clients and servers
operate over a computer network on separate hardware. A server machine
is a high-performance host that is running one or more server programs
which share its resources with clients. A client also shares any of its
resources; Clients therefore initiate communication sessions with servers
which await (listen to) incoming requests.

2. Sensor selection module.

The sensor selection problem only in terms of coverage and energy-saving

aspects, without paying attention to detection quality. In tracking
applications, when selecting the subset of sensor nodes to contribute to the
global decision, we have to consider how informative the sensor nodes are
about the state of the target.

addition to the MISS algorithm. The block diagram representation of the
sensor node whose task is distributed target tracking with MISS and ICTP.
Sensory observation is transferred to the information extractor module to
retrieve the information state and the information matrix denomination
values from the received observation using (5), which are then passed to the
local information filter module where local target tracking takes place
according to the operations

4. Target tracking Module.

Deficiency with this approach occurs for tracking applications if all the
sensor node local likelihood ratios fall in the no-send region and no belief
about the target state is shared among the nodes. In this paper, we
concentrate on the WSN part of the C4ISR application depicted in Fig. 1.
Sensor nodes try to collaboratively maintain accurate target position and
speed estimates to report to the UAV in an energy-efficient manner. We
consider the problem of tracking a single target using immobile sensor nodes
that collaborate with each other through a broadcast communication

5. Average energy consumed module.

If we adjust the transmission powers of the sensor nodes according to

Pattern 3, on average, we achieve 2.14 times less energy usage with respect
to the case in which no transmission power adjustment is made .However,
power adjustment, on average, doubles the target localization errors as
observed .The gain in terms of the exhausted communication energy does
not compensate the increase in the target localization error. Hence, reducing
the communication transmission power is not desirable.
