Wireless sensor networks are becoming increasingly the essential part of the digital world. Target tracking system is a significant part of wireless sensor networks. It has its own advantages and challenges. In this paper, a new Tree-Based target-tracking algorithm is proposed, by employing the minimum traffic rate to reduce the time and energy consumption. The proposed algorithm consists of four phases that create a tree structure from undirected and connected graph. It reduces the communication cost, overcomes message-flooding problem, maximizes the life time for each node to maximize the overall life time of the network.
