Abstract. This study aims to find the relationship between energy consumption level and object tracking success in an object tracking sensor network (OTSN). Convenient use of energy proposes a great challenge for wireless sensor network (WSN) design and the balance between successful object tracking and low energy consumption is a tight one. To address this issue, we propose a new network operation scheme for object tracking, implement this scheme in Network Simulator 2 (ns-2) and present the obtained results of the conducted simulation experiments. The simulation results show that the proposed method can be used to track objects in a WSN network in an energy conservative manner.
