Paper Abstract

This work investigates a distributed approach for fusion and sensor management in unattended sensor networks. The distributed approach not only improves robustness to node failure, but also reduces network communications load significantly over that of the more traditional non-managed centralized processing approach. Monte Carlo simulations show that bandwidth reductions of factors of two to three over that of traditional architectures are achievable, depending on such factors as radio communications range and node availability.
