Source localization and target tracking are among the most challenging problems in wireless sensor networks (WSN). Most of the state-of-the-art solutions are complicated and do not meet the processing and memory limitations of the existing low-cost sensor nodes. In this paper, we propose computationally-cheap solutions based on the support vector machine (SVM) and twin SVM (TWSVM) learning algorithms in which network nodes firstly detect the desired signal. Then, the network is trained to
