Multi-modal Target Tracking using Heterogeneous Sensor Networks

The paper describes a target tracking system running on a Heterogeneous Sensor Network (HSN) and presents results gathered from a realistic deployment. The system fuses audio direction of arrival data from mote class devices and object detection measurements from embedded PCs equipped with cameras. The acoustic sensor nodes perform beamforming and measure the energy as a function of the angle. The camera nodes detect moving objects and estimate their angle. The sensor detections are sent to a centralized sensor fusion node via a combination of two wireless networks.
