We study the detection error probabilities associated with an M -ary relay tree, where the leaves of the tree correspond to identical and independent sensors. Only these leaves are sensors. The root of the tree represents a fusion center that makes the overall detection decision. Each of the other nodes in the tree is a relay node that combines M summarized messages from its immediate child nodes to form a single output message using the majority dominance rule. We derive tight upper and lower… CONTINUE READING
