Abstract

In this paper, we propose a framework for target location estimation by designing an incentive-compatible mechanism in a wireless sensor network containing sensors that are selfish and profit-motivated. To accomplish the task, the fusion center (FC) conducts an auction by soliciting bids from the selfish sensors, where the bids reflect the information available at the sensor and the remaining energy of the sensors. Furthermore, the truthfulness of the sensors is guaranteed in our model. Computationally efficient algorithms to implement our mechanism are provided. Simulation results show the effectiveness of our proposed approach.
