For node awakening in wireless multi-sensor networks, an algorithm is put forward for three dimensional tar- get tracking. To monitor target dynamically in three dimensional area by controlling nodes, we constract vir- tual force between moving target and the current sense node depending on the virtual potential method, then select the next sense node with information gain function, so that when target randomly move in the specific three dimensional area, the maximum sensing ratio of motion trajectory is get with few nodes. The proposed algorithm is verified from the simulations.
