This paper proposes a TCP/IP based communication model for a dynamic self-configuring linkage of loosely coupled hybrid object tracking systems. The model combines existing concepts - as were implemented for Bluetooth or Jini - and expands them by additional mechanisms required for the calibration of real-time tracking systems. Using the proposed communication model it will be possible not only to integrate tracking systems dynamically into existing. sensor networks, but also to synchronize and calibrate: the sensors in time and space. After calibration the sensor network may serve as basis for further analysis or fusion tasks. To make it possible to support a wide range of tracking systems an XML schema is introduced, defining. the description of a sensor's features and performance.
