Optimal Signal Selection for Sensors

  title={Optimal Signal Selection for Sensors},
  author={Abdulaziz M. Alqarni and Thomas G. Robertazzi},
 Abstract—The focus of this research is sensor applications including radar and sonar. Optimal sensing means achieving the best sensing quality with the least time and energy cost, which allows processing more data. This paper presents novel work by using an integer linear programming “algorithm” to achieve optimal sensing by selecting the best possible number of signals of a type or a combination of multiple types of signals to ensure the best sensing quality considering all given constraints… Expand

Semi-definite programming for distributed tracking of dynamic objects by nonlinear sensor network
An optimized power allocation strategy based on semidefinite programming, that achieves minimum mean-squared error for the estimate subject to constraints on total transmit power is proposed. Expand
Time synchronization in sensor networks: a survey
The time synchronization problem and the need for synchronization in sensor networks is reviewed, then the basic synchronization methods explicitly designed and proposed for sensor networks are presented. Expand
Static Optimal Sensor Selection via Linear Integer Programming: The Orthogonal Case
This work casts the optimal sensor selection problem as a linear integer program (LIP) that corresponds to minimization of the trace of the linear least-squares estimation error covariance and provides simulation results to demonstrate polynomial-time solvability of the corresponding problem with the orthogonality condition.

Transmission Power Control for Link-Level Handshaking in Wireless Sensor Networks
In practical wireless sensor networks (WSNs), the main mechanism for link-level data exchange is through handshaking. To maximize the network lifetime, the transmission power levels for both data andExpand
Mixed-Integer Linear Programming Solution to Multi-Robot Task Allocation Problem
A mixed- integer linear programming solution to coordinate multiple heterogenenous robots for detecting and controlling multiple regions of interest in an unknown environment and various extensions to objective function and constraints to show the flexibility of mixed-integer linear programming formulation is introduced.
