The design of wireless sensor networks requires cross layer optimization of sensing, signal processing and communication. We consider the linear decentralized estimation model in which low complex sensors sense, amplify, and forward the noisy and scaled observation of a source variable via a multiple-access channel (MAC) to the fusion center (FC), where the… CONTINUE READING
