Energy efficiency for target tracking in wireless sensor networks is very important and can be improved by reducing the number of nodes involved in communications. We propose two algorithms, RARE-area and RARE-node to reduce the number of nodes participating in tracking and so increase energy efficiency. The RARE-area algorithm ensures that only nodes that receive a given quality of data participate in tracking and the RARE-node algorithm ensures that any nodes with redundant information do not… CONTINUE READING
