- Estimation using ad hoc WSNs raises exciting challenges
- Communication constraints
- Limited power budget
- Lack of hierarchy / decentralized processing Consensus

- Unique features
- Environment is constantly changing (e.g., WSN topology)
- Lack of statistical information at sensor-level

- Bottom line: algorithms are required to be
- Resource efficient
- Simple and flexible
- Adaptive and robust to changes

Single-hop communications

- Single-shot distributed estimation algorithms
- Consensus averaging [Xiao-Boyd ’05, Tsitsiklis-Bertsekas ’86, ’97]
- Incremental strategies [Rabbat-Nowak etal ’05]
- Deterministic and random parameter estimation [Schizas etal ’06]

- Consensus-based Kalman tracking using ad hoc WSNs
- MSE optimal filtering and smoothing [Schizas etal ’07]
- Suboptimal approaches [Olfati-Saber ’05],[Spanos etal ’05]

- Distributed adaptive estimation and filtering
- LMS and RLS learning rules [Lopes-Sayed ’06 ’07]

- Ad hoc WSN with sensors
- Single-hop communications only. Sensor ‘s neighborhood
- Connectivity information captured in
- Zero-mean additive (e.g., Rx) noise

- Goal: estimate a signal vector
- Each sensor , at time instant
- Acquires a regressor and scalar observation
- Both zero-mean and spatially uncorrelated

- Least-mean squares (LMS) estimation problem of interest

- Find spectral peaks of a narrowband (e.g., seismic) source
- AR model:
- Source-sensor multi-path channels modeled as FIR filters
- Unknown orders and tap coefficients

- Observation at sensor is
- Define:
- Challenges
- Data model not completely known
- Channel fades at the frequencies occupied by
