This article intends to present a Cluster based Trustable Target Detection and Tracking Scheme (CTTDTS) for Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). The entire network area is segregated into numerous equal sized grids and each grid acts as a cluster. All the grids are populated with equal count of nodes. A predominant node is elected for each grid by means of trust degree, which is computed by the Dempster Shafer theory. The predominant node fixes the minimal count of active nodes per grid and controls

Besides this, the predominant node alerts the neighborhood clusters through which the target may traverse. The network lifetime is considerably enhanced by employing job cycle scheduling and clustering technique. The experimental results prove the efficacy of the proposed approach in terms of detection accuracy, energy consumption and network lifetime.
