Wireless Sensor Network has the potentiality to connect the physical world with the virtual world by forming a network of sensor nodes. Energy efficient object tracking is one of the main design issues for wireless sensor networks. Energy efficiency is required as the whole WSN is dependent on the power of batteries and the object tracking is required for checking the varying speed of target, target precision and missing target recovery. BFOA works for providing the energy efficient clusters and cluster head selection and the task of object tracking is performed by prediction based clustering algorithm.
