Energy Efficient Signal Detection in Sensor Networks Using Ordered Transmissions

  title={Energy Efficient Signal Detection in Sensor Networks Using Ordered Transmissions},
  author={Rick S. Blum and Brian M. Sadler},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing},
Signal detection is one application for which dedicated sensor networks have been proposed. Joint signal processing and communication design of such networks has been of great interest recently. We consider new approaches where transmissions can be ordered and halted when sufficient evidence is accumulated. We demonstrate that these approaches require, on average, fewer sensor transmissions and that the savings can be significant in cases of interest. We describe a highly efficient approach… CONTINUE READING
