In an autonomous sensor network without a central fusion center, it is desired that any node has the ability to make the final decision once it has enough information about the Phenomenon of Interest (PoI) within a certain confidence level. In this paper, we propose a distributed sequential methodology which updates the current node's estimator based on its own observation and noise corrupted decision from the previous node. We show that sequential processing is useful only when the channel… CONTINUE READING
