In this paper, we propose a Parallel Genetic Algorithm (PGA) for optimizing the performance of a parallel decentralized sensor network. The metric used for the optimization is the probability of global detection error. The Parallel Genetic Algorithm simultaneously optimizes both the fusion rule and the local decision rules. We show that our approach provides results comparable to those obtained by using a GA and gradientbased algorithm from previous work by Aldosari and Moura, with reduced… CONTINUE READING
