Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are one of the most researched areas worldwide as the wide-scale networks possess low cost, are small in size, consume low power, and can be deployed in various environments. Among various applications of WSNs, target tracking is a highly demanding and broadly investigated application of wireless sensor networks. The parameter of accurate tracking is restricted because of the limited resources present in the wireless sensor networks, noise of the network, environmental factors, and faulty sensor nodes. Our work aims to enhance the accuracy of the tracking process as well as energy utilization by combing the mechanism of clustering with the prediction. Here, we present a hybrid energy-regulated constant gain Kalman filter-based target detection and tracking method, which is an algorithm to make the best use of energy and enhance precision in tracking. Our proposed algorithm is compared with the existing approaches where it is observed that the proposed technique possesses efficient energy utilization by decreasing the transference of unimportant data within the sensor network, achieving accurate results.[...] Read more.
