Event detection and tracking are attractive research issues in the wireless sensor network (WSN). The paper proposes a fully distributed protocol, CollECT, to event detection and tracking in a Wireless Heterogeneous Sensor Network (WHSN), composed of many kinds of sensors. In CollECT, three major procedures, vicinity triangulation, event determination, and border sensor selection are used to construct the logical triangle in the vicinity of a sensor, to determine the event, and to select the border sensor to identify the event boundary, respectively. The procedures perform repeatedly to both detect and track events. Simulation results demonstrate that CollECT is promising for event detection and tracking due to satisfactory event accuracy and reasonable fitness of border sensors.
