The decentralized sequential hypothesis testing problem is studied in sensor networks, where a set of sensors receive independent observations and send summary messages to the fusion center, which makes a final decision. In the scenario where the sensors have full access to their past observations, the first asymptotically Bayes sequential test is developed having the same asymptotic performance as the optimal centralized test that has access to all sensor observations. Next, in the scenario… CONTINUE READING
