In recent years, there has been significant interest and advances in developing systematic techniques to synthesize interactive and reconfigurable distributed sensing systems that are capable of performing effective inferencing and control tasks under overall resource constraints. Networked Sensing Information and Control is a collection of papers which present broad trends in the mathematical aspects of networked sensing, information, and control. Recent advances in sensor and computing technologies have provided the impetus for deploying distributed sensing systems, which could find applications in building safety, environmental monitoring, power systems, manufacturing, national security, and space exploration. This technology is in the early stages of development consequently a number of issues need to addressed for successful realization of distributed sensing systems. This book takes a system-level perspective, presents some of the main mathematical problems and offers design solutions. The book is organized around four major themes: Blind Localization Distributed Computation over Unreliable Communication Networks Rate Constrained Field Reconstruction Dynamics and Control over Communication Networks Written by leading researchers and engineers, Networked Sensing Information and Control includes motivating examples from specific domains such as national defense and environmental monitoring, but also provides fundamental theory and methods which are applicable to a wide range of networked sensing applications.
