Paper Abstract

A decentralized detection system usually contains a number of remotely located local sensors that observe a common phenomenon and a data fusion center that makes a final decision. The local sensors are linked to the data fusion center by transmission channels. In this paper, some aspects of decision fusion problems with communication constraints are considered. Two interesting issues, namely, bandwidth allocation among the channels linking local sensors to the fusion center, and the trade-off between the number of sensors and the number of likelihood-ratio quantization levels at local sensors, are studied. Examples are presented for illustration.
