We study a network of non-collaborating sensors that make noisy measurements of some physical process X and communicate their readings to a central processing unit. Limited power resources of the sensors severely restrict communication rates. Sensors and their communication links are both subject to failure; however, the central unit is guaranteed to receive data from a minimum fraction of the sensors, say k out of n sensors. The goal of the central unit is to optimally estimate X from the… CONTINUE READING
