Model Based Target Tracking in a Wireless Network of Passive Infrared Sensor Nodes

By VS Nithya, Karthik Sheshadri, Anurag Kumar and KVS Hari


We consider the problem of tracking an intruder in a plane region by using a wireless sensor network comprising motes equipped with passive infrared (PIR) sensors deployed over the region. An input-output model for the PIR sensor and a method to estimate the angular speed of the target from the sensor output are proposed. With the measurement model so obtained, we study the centralized and decentralized tracking performance using the extended Kalman filter
