With the advances in technology, low cost and low footprint sensors are being used more and more commonly. Especially for military applications wireless sensor networks (WSN) have become an attractive solution as they have great use for avoiding deadly danger in combat. For military applications, classification of a target in a battlefield plays an important role. A wireless sensor node has the ability to sense the raw signal data in battlefield, extract the feature vectors from sensed signal and produce a local classification result using a classifier. Although only one sensor is sufficient to produce a classification result, decision fusion of the local classification results for a number of sensor nodes improves classification accuracy. In our approach, we propose fuzzy decision fusion methods for single target classification in a WSN environment. Our proposed fusion algorithms use fuzzy logic for selecting the most appropriate sensor nodes to be used for classification. Our algorithms provide better classification accuracy over some popular decision fusion algorithms.

Previous advances in Information Technologies and especially in Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems, have made the Production and deployment of tiny, battery-powered nodes communicating over wireless links possible. Networks comprised of such nodes with sensing capability are called Wireless Sensor Networks. The early deployment aim was to use these nodes only in a passive way for indoor applications. These kinds of early nodes had the ability to sense scalar data such as temperature, humidity, pressure and lo...

In wireless sensor networks, sensors with limited resources are distributed in a wide area. Localizing the sensors is an important problem. Anchor nodes with known positions are used for sensor localization. A simple and efficient way of generating anchor nodes is to use mobile anchors which have built-in GPS units. In this thesis, a single mobile anchor is used to traverse the region of interest to communicate with the sensor nodes and identify their positions. Therefore planning the best trajectory for th...
