Monitoring Moving Target and Energy Saving Localization Algorithm in Wireless Sensor Networks


Detecting the exact position of a moving target is the most rapidly developing vicinity of wireless sensor networks in which energy consumption is the one of the important aspects. In this paper, we have adapted a selective approach algorithm which is based on one hop neighbor. The scope of the paper is to identify the location of moving targets and to improve the energy of sensors. The energy is saved by the sensors positioned near the moving target only activated using a selective approach algorithm by which lifetime of the network could be extended. At the same time, the accuracy and mobility also calculated and compared with existing method of blind source separation which gives the best performance of the proposed algorithm.
