  title={Energy efficient approach for target tracking in Wireless Sensor Networks},
  author={Asmaa Ez-Zaidi and Said Rakrak},
Target tracking is one of the hottest topics of research in wireless sensor networks. It consists in detecting and retrieving the successive locations of single or multiple objects during their movements in the monitored area. Minimizing the energy consumption while providing high accuracy in target tracking is a challenging problem as sensor nodes are constrained in terms of energy. In this paper, we present an energy efficient approach for object tracking based on data mining techniques to…
