Abstract

We consider distributed estimation in wireless sensor networks (WSNs). Using linear minimum mean squared error (LMMSE) estimator, we derive mean squared error (MSE) to measure the quality of estimation. We introduce a global signal to noise ratio (SNR), where we can derive capacity of data collection in terms of mutual information as reciprocity of MSE. Based on the global SNR, we derive equal power allocation and optimal power allocation in orthogonal multiple access channel (MAC) models. We also derive asymptotic behavior of the global SNR when the power and the number of sensors become unlimited. We minimize MSE as well as maximize mutual information by considering total and individual power constraints. We show that MSE and mutual information of equal power allocation outperforms optimal power allocation. Moreover, system with individual power constraint is worse than the system without that because the suggested power to be allocated is constrained by maximum transmit power of the sensors.
