N2 - Target tracking applications have recently evolved becomingessential intelligence and law enforcement tools. Traditionally, long-rangecommunications, such as cellular networks, have been used for this purpose.Such conventional tracking approach, however, usually suffers from severalaccuracy implications due to location measurement errors. This is exemplifiedin densely cluttered and indoor environments where measurements are severelyaffected by excessive environmental and physical noise. Additionally, mostlocalisation and tracking mechanisms today are based on active approach wheretargets actively cooperate in the tracking process, or at least are aware of it.Clearly, such approach is not suitable for law enforcement applications wheretargets are suspects or criminals. In this paper, we adopt an algorithmicapproach to build an agent-based passive tracking system. We develop anumber of algorithms to initiate and maintain this tracking system whileconsistently preserving passivity.
