We introduce a novel localization technique that can jointly estimate the locations of a moving target and the sensor nodes in a wireless image sensor network. The proposed method is based on in-node image processing and can be implemented in a decentralized or clustered fashion. In our approach, two image sensors are used to define a relative coordinate system. In order to synchronize the observations, the node defined as the origin broadcasts packets that trigger image capture at other nodes… Expand
