Hybrid sensor networks (HSNs) comprise of mobile and static sensor nodes setup for purpose of collaboratively performing tasks like sensing a phenomenon or monitoring a region. In this paper, we present target interception as a novel application using mobile sensor nodes as executor. Static sensor nodes sense, compute and communicate with each other for navigation. Mobile nodes are guided to intercept target by the static nodes nearby. Our approach does not require any prior maps of the environment thus, cutting down the cost of the overall energy consumption. As to multi-targets multi-mobile nodes case, we present a PMB algorithm for task assignment. Simulation results have verified the feasibility and effectiveness of our approach proposed.
