Target Tracking with Self-Organizing Distributed Sensors

WithRichard R. Brooks, Christopher Griffin, David S. Friedlander, J.D. Koch, İlker Özçelik

As computational devices have shrunk in size and cost, the Internet and wireless networking have become ubiquitous. Both trends are enabling technologies for the implementation of large-scale, distributed, embedded systems. Multiple applications exist for these systems in control and instrumentation. One area of particular importance is distributed sensing. Distributed sensing is necessary for applications of importance to government and industry such as defense, transportation, border patrol, arms control verification, contraband interdiction, and agriculture.
