A wireless, battery-powered, stationary camera sensor network optimizes trade-off between extending its lifetime and enhancing its sensing accuracy by activating only a desirable camera subset for given targets in a timely fashion. This paper models this selection problem in a cooperative bargaining game based on the serial dictatorial rule, where cooperative sensors sequentially decide their mode between “sleep” and “active” in descending order of their bargaining power. Simulated resource overheads and the concerned performances, network lifetime and sensing accuracy are given as well.
