Abstract : In this paper we address the problem of Object Tracking in WSN. We define Mobile Object Tracking as a two stage process: 1 detecting the presence of the object in the monitoring area and 2 locating it at each stage of its progression in the area. We propose a Collaborative Tracking Algorithm named CTA. CTA is a distributed protocol that runs on Heterogeneous WSN HWSN which consists of two types of sensors: Motion Sensors MS and Camera Sensors CS. The MS deals with the detection phase and then activates the CS based on a probabilistic threshold. In addition to the tracking algorithm, we propose a deployment strategy and study its impact on CTA. The efficiency of our proposed solution is evaluated according to simulation performed. The obtained results are compared to three existing solutions: 1 Naïve solution where only CSs are deployed always in active mode; 2 OCNS Optimal Camera Node Selection is cluster-based approach with a CS election and 3 EAOT, our previously proposed algorithm based on heuristic CS wake up. We observe that CTA significantly reduces the tracking cost in term of energy consumption up to 38% of energy saved compared to other algorithms. It also performs tracking up to 37.5% on the tracking accuracy.
