In Indian coastal zone, real-time tracking of fishing vessels is nonexisting. This leads to numerous challenges in search and rescue operation, communicating emergency messages, etc. A quick solution for this is to install GPS devices, which is costly. In our research work, we designed and developed a low-cost hybrid solution with minimum number of location aware nodes. Real-time relative location information of mobile sensor nodes was developed by integrating mobility management, virtual coordinate system (VCS), and topology preserving map (TPM). The architecture is implemented in MATLAB and is tested with a rectangular network scenario with up to five mobile nodes and is able to track the relative location trace of mobile nodes at a particular interval of time. The effect of various simulation parameters such as communication range, node placement, number of mobile nodes, and sampling rate selection in tracking the mobile nodes with our system is also performed. © Springer India 2016.
