Object tracking using sensor network





Abstract—With the help of sensor networks we can keep track on the events using low and tiny powered devices. In the paper, we are going to analyze and compare multiple object tracking methods. Instead of using a single sensor we use multiple sensors and space them, so it gives us information. Wireless sensor networks has node with sensor capabilities and place in object proximity for detecting them. Sensor networks are applicable in many fields. Depending on the object tracking in sensor network ranging from defense and military applications to earth sciences and environmental, habitat monitoring, traffic monitoring, surveillance and military reconnaissance and cross-border which involves habitat monitoring, infiltration and other commercial applications.


Index Terms—energy efficient object tracking, object tracking, quality of tracking, wireless sensor networks, multi target tracking, routing



We Need to have a gathering of frameworks which cooperate to follow an item rather than a solitary sensor. Due to this strength, ability and productivity of the arrangement. Various sensors mitigate the issue of single purpose of disappointment. A Single costly sensor expands the danger of disappointment over the zone of intrigue. Every sensor hub has a sensor ready, a processor and a remote handset. Normally, a following application research can be ordered in two different ways. In recent years, Wireless sensor network is one of the rapidly growing area[1]. To begin with, the issue of precisely evaluating the area of article and second being in organize information preparing and information conglomeration model for following item. Article can be situated out commonly by two activities; by update from the sensors or questioning the sensor for information to find the item. Checking of articles would require less time than following of new item.

Regularly, a remote sensor organize comprises of enormous number of sensor hubs and is wanted to find an item in the sensor arrange by playing out a routine occasionally. This included following the article and assembling data.




This is a term paper submitted for course requirement fulfillment of “Advanced Wireless Networks”.

Sahithi Reddy Orla is current student in Wright State University Computer Science and Engineering Department, Fairborn, OH 45324, USA (e-mail:, UID: U00916256).

We have to have a particular calculation to process or track the area of the article with the assistance of information There are different sorts of item following strategies which can be looked at and broke down. In remote sensor systems we have sensor hubs to find an item in the system. This procedure is done occasionally including gathering information from sensor hubs.


There are two significant issues that we manage. Initial one would be loss of vitality as far as utilization and the subsequent one would be loss of way track. We have huge number of sensors put in a system portable articles being followed persistently. On the off chance that the quantity of sensors following a solitary portable article builds, vitality utilization will likewise increment. On the off chance that there is lost track, at that point we have to furnish a necessary calculation alongside recuperation system inside specified time.

Examinations are finished relying upon different measurements. We first need to arrange the methodologies and afterward look at. Article following methodologies can be characterized

dependent on various sorts of calculations we use, diverse sort of sensors, number of focuses on that should be followed, kind of focuses on that should be followed, organize engineering, innovation to be utilized.



The first wireless network that bore any real resemblance to a modern WSN is the Sound Surveillance System (SOSUS), developed by the United States Military in the 1950s to detect and track Soviet submarines [2].The utilization of remote sensor organize is expanding exponentially in all territories due to simple access and comfort. In Today’s universes we utilize specially appointed system innovation, so that bury sensor correspondence should be possible without any problem. Article following has been broadly utilized for versatile apply autonomy. Here, according to the examination, object following is done dependent on the criticism given by the tactile system to compute the situation of the article that is moving. Due to this it turned into an estimation procedure. Strategy is likewise utilized for untamed life assurance as it requires observing for security.


This checking should be possible by setting the gadget like a tag on the objective article. This objective will be the one which we needed to follow. This devise transmits waves and we likewise have a correspondence hardware where these waves are focused towards correspondence gear just as other radio waves or signals. This specialized gadget here can be a PC or a GPS framework. Consequently here the information is gotten from these gadgets We can screen objects which are fixed too. We subject hubs here and track those hubs with the assistance of the gadgets utilizing sensor systems. The evaluation of the object-tracking system is performed by conducting a number of indoor and outdoor experiments [3].


Not many of the variables are to be thought of while structuring a following convention in remote sensor systems. We have to consider these elements with the goal that the exhibition gets improved. These variables have incredibly affected the presentation of the framework. A portion of the variables are: Routing and questioning convention, planning calculation Aggregation and information combination strategies, area of sensor hubs, versatility model of the objective, and MAC conventions. Steering and questioning convention are significantly used to discover the relationship. This relationship is done between various hubs. We have other term called conglomeration which decreases event of information more than once and this diminishes vitality and traffic during the procedure of communication.



Object following utilizing remote sensor is commonly costly. Remote sensor systems comprise of hubs which cooperate to finish a given assignment. Wireless sensor networks have been deployed in several cities (StockholmLondon, and Brisbane) to monitor the concentration of dangerous gases for citizens [4]. There are a few strategies to follow the article proposed by certain specialists.


1.Network engineering


3.different kinds of sensors utilized

4.number of targets utilized for usage.


1.Network engineering

We have three kinds of network engineering:

a. Decentralized engineering.

b. Cluster based engineering.

c. Tree-based engineering.


a.Decentralized engineering:

This kind of engineering doesn’t have any sort of bunches. It comprises of enormous number of hubs and all the hubs are on a similar level.


b.Cluster based engineering:

Here we have various bunches where each group has a gathering of sensors and each gathering structures a solitary bunch. This gathering depends on the measurements called separation. Each group has an inside called source or bunch head. Signs are send from bunch head to the base station. Data of moving item is identified by the bunches and is given to the base station

Fig 1: Sending info from clusters to base station


Sensors for this situation sense the information from the objective. Sensor hubs take the data as information bundles and offer them to the comparing group heads. Here it is the duty of bunch to deal with combination of information so excess doesn’t happen just as the information total and relationship.


Groups additionally deal with the spending limit for instrument. They decline the expense of this system by expending less vitality and along these lines broadening the life of the system. There are two kinds of bunch based models they are:

– Static clustering

– Dynamic clustering


Static clustering:

In this bunch works with relating sensors and they stay static. They stay joined as they were pre-allocated for the procedure. Static Clustering based Routing Protocols are those in which clusters once formed remain same throughout the network lifetime [5].


Dynamic clustering:

Bunch pioneer can be changed during the arrangement of system. It gets changed regularly during the procedure. In this we use non-prescient based. In forecast based sensors go into rest mode and just not many of them becomes dynamic when there is an article required to follow.


Different sensors become dynamic just when the way following beginnings. However, if there should be an occurrence of non-forecast, we utilize just non-rest sensor hubs, with the goal that all the sensor hubs must stay dynamic during following.


c.Tree based engineering:

Information combination is a procedure on sensors used to acquire deduction about accumulated information and diminish loud estimations.

Fig 2: Tree based architecture



1. According to tests in a single situation there was where anticipated direction is not quite the same as real direction. Be that as it may, the way picked was same and is consistent. Be that as it may, this isn’t a similar case consistently. On the off chance that guess the way is in shot movement and anticipated just as genuine way are distinctive then the whole system falls flat.

Along these lines, we have to follow all the elements to maintain a strategic distance from such conditions.

Situation 1: steady way

Situation 2: Projectile way


2. Utilizing Algorithms:

Contingent upon number of calculations which has sleepy sensors detailing chasing


a) systems which has sleepy sensors:

In this we have tired hubs. At the point when we have to recognize object these lethargic hubs are made dynamic. Component must be done with the goal that target must be recognized.


b). Target detailing:

The information is constantly voyage however out the system. The data about objective area is sent to focal substance. Following the objective so as to decrease vitality is the primary point.

c) Target Chasing:

In this, focal element is utilized to identify target truly.


3.Utilizing various sorts of sensors.

a.Standard sensors

b.Binary Sensors.


a.Standard sensors:

Standard sensors have unique estimation of sign. Consequently signal quality can be utilized to ascertain speed of the article its heading, and the separation of the item.


b.Binary sensors:

Sensors that chip away at parallel qualities state two, and are commonly known as twofold sensors. These sensors are utilized to know the objective with the assistance of hubs.


4. In view of the quantity of targets to be followed:

a.Single target following

b.Multiple target following.


a.Single objective following:

Single objective following is utilized to deliver less information so we can have low traffic in the system nearly. This kind of following ids simple to follow rather that Multiple objective following. We simply have single item to follow so number of sensors utilized will likewise diminish.


b.Multiple target following:

In this the quantity of articles to be followed increments, thus multifaceted nature increments. For this situation organize traffic increments and the quantity of sensor utilized likewise increments. On account of this vitality required additionally increments.


There are numerous difficulties engaged with multi-target following when contrasted with single objective following. We have to relate and collect the data that has shown up. We have to additionally choose which information takes after the objective we are searching for. Also, we have to ensure no two items must be in same space. They should be diverse space with the goal that following turns out to be clear.



Type Techniques used
Based on cluster · In Static cluster sensors are static

· In Dynamic

clusters sensors are not static i.e., dynamic

Based on tree · Work is done by base station

· There is no intersections between clusters

· Hierarchical order is followed

Based on Algorithms · Uses sleepy sensor nodes for energy reduction

· Chasing of object is done where we have the data about the moving object

· Target reporting is completed where the initial data is taken





How about we accept a gathering of sensor hubs following some k objects where k>0. The separation of this item and the area is followed utilizing sensors. We by and large utilize a calculation for this activity. This calculation ought to be structured so that number of sensors utilized ought to get limited. The vitality required gets decreased if the quantity of sensors are limited. This expands the existence time of the sensors.


In any case, the issue here is despite the fact that we utilize less number of sensors loss of direction during following ought not happen. In this way, need to have a calculation where there ought to be recuperation of direction inside determined time.


In this way, we currently consider a portion of the variables that the calculation should meet.

a) Node placement strategy

b) Data fusion strategy

c) Routing and query protocol

d) Energy consumption.

e) Localization algorithm

f) Scheduling algorithm

g) Mobility model of target

h) Time delay

i) MAC protocol

j) Scalability

k) Precision

l) Adaptability



In this a point by point clarification about certain components that must be met by algorithm.


a.Collection and data fusion procedures:

In this collection of information is done which means care is taken with the end goal that information doesn’t gets rehashed. As a result of this lessening in repetition organize traffic likewise diminishes. Any way we don’t have any utilization of sending same information a few times.

So here data fusion is done where we ensure rehashed information isn’t sent a few times with the goal that transmission of information gets productive. Not many calculations embrace this accumulation and information combination methodology and get productive results.


b.Nodes placement procedure:

Situations of the sensors additionally impacts the calculation and following productivity. Node placement influences the target position, coverage area, and connectivity in sensor networks [6].We have diverse position of sensors state triangular, rectangular, square and so on. Triangular sensors are utilized when sensors are set fit as a fiddle and the quantity of dynamic sensors will be less in this organization.

On the off chance that similar sensors are set in square arrangement the quantity of dynamic sensors builds in this manner expanding the proficiency. On account of this we have less likelihood of losing the track.



c.Routing and inquiry protocol:

Routing and inquiry convention has extraordinary significance and spot a significant job in accomplishing elite. Before we send the information to the base station information must be corresponded with the information of other sensor hubs. We as a rule don’t see this kind of connection in numerous calculations.

Be that as it may, this must be utilized with the goal that the following proficiency likewise increments. It likewise improves recuperation of the article on the off chance that it loses the track. By utilizing group heads, we can associate the information that should be sent to base station.


d.Versatility and model of target:

Base station once in a while predicts the direction of the objective without following it. By doing this it can without much of a stretch track the lost bundles as opposed to playing out the whole component. In any case, this can be applying for just scarcely any cases. So also, base station can’t anticipate the way and identify the lost bundle of data. This mobility model could be used in target tracking and law enforcement [7].


e.Localization calculation:

In this we can anticipate the item in two different ways. Initial one would be the customary method for following the objective utilizing sensor hubs. Other way is that dependent on the area on the sensor which can foresee the area of the item. Be that as it may, this system isn’t autonomous of where the sensors are put. They thoroughly rely upon the area just as the request for dynamic sensors.


f.Scheduling calculation:

This calculation is valuable to save vitality of the sensor hubs. In this controlled are send into rest mode when they don’t have any article to follow. Sensors can stay in rest mode until they are pinged by any item that should be followed.

For this situation in general utilization of vitality by the sensors diminishes and hence the effectiveness. By this kind of planning we can likewise improve arrange life. Be that as it may, if sensors don’t react well to the application blunders are seen and the whole instrument fizzles.


g.MAC Protocol:

Medium Access Control (MAC) is an important technique that ensures the successful operation of WSN because it controls the radio’s activity of sensor nodes, which consumes node’s major energy. MAC protocols must be energy efficient in wireless sensor networks [8]. This convention is the most fundamental calculation to be utilized. This uses an on and off system of radio conventions. We utilize this to cross layer the information between layers. In any case, not all calculations have determined MAC convention. Be that as it may, on the off chance that they have a MAC convention as per their flexibility there are reasonable odds of increment in effectiveness.



Scalability of routing protocols used in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) is a critical issue due to the extremely high node numbers and relatively high node density [9]. This discussions about the size of the system, and the convenience of the following framework. Calculation ought to be structured dependent on the size and kind of system. A portion of the calculations work better in little size systems. while different calculations are progressively fit to enormous size systems.

Also, not many calculations are acceptable to follow single targets while few perform extraordinary on multi object following. Hence, adaptable sort of calculation should be actualized for better yields.



There are two postponements in this instrument. One of them is the postpone that is happened in finding the item by the sensor hubs. At the point when the sensor hubs set aside more than expected effort to get data from the article then there will a postponement in following by the sensor hubs.

The other deferral would be time taken by the sensor hubs to pass this data to the base station. They have to send this data first to the bunch heads and from that point to the base station. Deferral in revealing information from the sensor hubs to the base station relies upon steering conventions. However, delay in getting the area of the objective relies upon the following convention.


j.Energy utilization:

As we have talked about in the issue passage vitality devoured by the sensors hubs must be less. At the end of the day, number of sensors used to follow the objective ought to get decreased and in this way the lifetime of sensor organizes significantly increments.


k.Protocol overhead:

This is subject to control bundles just as calculation. This is commonly seen if there should be an occurrence of organized conventions. We additionally have convention overhead in unstructured convention yet relatively less.



The calculation that we are utilizing ought to be versatile to the progressions made by the objective article. The objective article may change its way or speed or some other properties. In spite of every one of these progressions calculation must be steady.



We currently look at changed following techniques dependent on their belongings and execution. Correlation is done dependent on bunch, group heads and their exhibition. We likewise use tree calculations for better outcomes. This sort of calculation is commonly costly as it has a perplexing foundation. It needs to convey data beginning from the hubs to the base station. Thus to keep up this sort of multifaceted nature we have to contribute more.


When there is high pace of data required alongside high multifaceted nature of target space, there will be increment in number of sensors hubs utilized. These centers get expanded with the expansion in imperativeness. There are diverse sensor systems like DPT just as DPR however they expend less vitality from the sensor hubs during the extraction of data by the sensor hubs.


In DOT and some other portable specialist based strategies, they begin keeping hang on some sensor hubs, which implies they put undesirable hubs into rest hubs. This implies the activity is done like typical instrument.


In LESOP we can decide the following group head by keeping up every single other hub in rest mode. In spite of the fact that this plan we can decrease the measure of vitality being devoured by the sensor hubs.

Moreover, correlation taxi be done dependent on track recuperation. We have numerous forecast based methods. Model, DPT, PES, DPR. In this plan possibility of losing the objective object of target direction is less relatively. Be that as it may, it can’t be maintained a strategic distance from totally. They follow systems like recuperation to bring back the lost objective.


The recurrence at which sensor hubs becomes dynamic is high in DOT.As this recurrence expands, there will be an expansion in vitality utilization. This is on the grounds that the quantity of dynamic sensor hub increments and afterward the vitality utilization increments.


There are strategies, for example, DCTC and DAB where we have expanding number of sensor hubs. Thickness of sensor hubs continue expanding with the expansion in vitality utilization increments.


There will be preprocessing stage at the beginning time of the framework. LESOP doesn’t have this preprocessing stage while DOT has one with the goal that it can enlist the information.


Number of control bundles can be one of the models of examination. In a portion of the schedules like DPT, DPR and PES there is no specific calculation that it follows. In view of this we can’t recognize the quantity of control bundles associated with their system.


Multi target following can be another other option and one of the viable path for correlation. Be that as it may, the majority of the components have the calculations that can identify multi target objects. In numerous continuous applications multi target are available and their following will be important to remain in the opposition. Be that as it may, there are some method which can’t perform multi target following. For this situation they can be reached out to sift through the issue.


For instance, in cross layer, to follow the objective it required symmetrical radio channels. They additionally help in following of multi targets. Subsequently, this is given to cross layer design.

Utilizing diverse multiplexing systems like TDMA, FDMA. In “Dynamic bunching” sensor hubs get signature information as signature parcels from the objective. In view of this there will be an expansion in effectiveness and heartiness when managing numerous objectives. Besides, in different procedures like “Appropriated Group Management” there will a calculation for shaping gatherings like bunches with the goal that effectiveness to following numerous objectives increments.


The calculations utilized for steering may likewise be considered as a significant factor for examination. Examination is done in all the portable put together methods based with respect to their ability and speed of sending information from the objective article to the sensor hub and from sensor hub to the base station.

There is another sort of directing called Information diverted steering where it assists with diverting to the wellspring of information accessible and perform following in a smooth manner.A portion of the following strategies may not think about this, be that as it may, they rely upon the one jump correspondence.

The other two factors that can be contemplated data about the arrangement of the sensor hubs just as the utilization of restriction calculation. In all the techniques referenced above we accept that sensor hubs. Have the information on their area and they likewise share their data with encompassing sensor hubs. In any case, restriction calculation can be utilized to identify the area of the hubs on the off chance that they don’t have data about their area. They can have the information on their location just if this data is arranged as need.


Classification Mechanism of recovery Deactivating of the nodes
Based on tree · This classification does not have a recovery mechanism · Deactivation of node can be done by keeping in sleep mode
Based on leader methods · This classification does not have a recovery mechanism


· Deactivation of node can be done by keeping sleep mode
Based on cluster methods · This classification does not have a recovery mechanism · Deactivation of node can be done for energy consumption



Main limitation in sensor network today is energy. Due to increase in needs and decrease in resources we have low power. So we need to limit our energy consumption. And it increases network lifetime. When compared to other technologies cluster based method decreases energy consumption. This can be tested in single and multi-target scenarios. Moreover, we can use cluster-based method in heterogeneous and homogeneous target types. Though, there is a issue in multi-layer tacking known as “Mobicast”. Mobicast is a spatiotemporal multicast routing protocol. Mobicast protocols were designed to support the forwarding zone that moves at a constant velocity, v, through sensor networks [10]. This happens when there is data transfer from one node to another. There is another problem in Multi-target tracking when there is nodes transfer from one cluster to another. Nonetheless, it results in increase of the cost.


Thus, future work should be done so that the problems on multi-target tracking gets solved.
