Consider a network of sensors, each of which has limited sensing resources, which is tasked with collecting noisy classification information on objects. The amount of resources required a given sensor to measure an object depends on the specific sensor-object geometry. Sensors exchange collected information to estimate object identities and coordinate which measurements to collect. This paper describes a computable lower bound on the classification error that can be achieved by a causal… CONTINUE READING
