This report documents research results on distributed tracking by a distributed sensor network DSN. A DSN is made up of a set of nodes which can communicate to each other via a communication network. Each DSN node contains a processor collecting data from some sensors. The processor performs tracking functions using the local sensor data and communicates the processing results to other nodes according to some communication strategy. The receiving node then integrates or fuses the information from other nodes with its local information to arrive at a better estimate. Compared with a centralized tracking system, a DSN has advantages such as increased reliability, less communication, local use of processing results, etc.
