Enhancing the Life Time of a Wireless Sensor Network in Target Tracking Applications

Phuong Pham, Sesh Commuri

Abstract

We propose a method to enhance the life span of the WSN under the constraint of tracking quality. The problem is cast as an optimization problem to minimize the power consumption cost function under the constraint of tracking quality. The cost function accounts for both the residual power of each sensor node and its sensing task. The cost function increases when the residual power of a sensor node decreases or a sensing task requires more power. The improvement in the tracking performance obtained by the proposed method is demonstrated through numerical examples.
