Abstract

The performance of an energy-efficient object tracking system depends on its accuracy in predicting the next destination of a mobile event. Unfortunately, a sophisticated prediction method cannot be operated in sensor nodes which have low computational power and storage. Moreover, precise prediction alone cannot be guaranteed to eliminate error in the future destination of the object in real circumstances. In this paper, we present a location error handling technique to prevent and handle this error efficiently. Real situations such as an unexpected change in the mobile event's direction, failure of event-detection and failure of transmitting an error message are considered when designing the error handling technique. This simple yet effective solution complements the weakness of the energy-efficient object tracking paradigm. From experiments on both real hardware and simulation, our method outperformed the existing work.
