The use of local processing to reduce data transmission rates, and thereby power and bandwidth requirements, is common in wireless sensor networks. Achieving the minimum possible data rate, however, is not always the optimal choice when the effects of packet loss on overall measurement error are considered. This paper presents a case study from the area of wireless inertial motion capture, in which the best distributed processing strategy is shown to be that which minimises inter-packet data… CONTINUE READING
