Optimal/near-optimal dimensionality reduction for distributed estimation in homogeneous and certain inhomogeneous scenarios
We consider distributed estimation of a deterministic vector parameter from noisy sensor observations in a wireless sensor network (WSN). The observation noise is assumed uncorrelated across sensors. To meet stringent power and bandwidth budgets inherent in WSNs, local data dimensionality reduction is performed at each sensor to reduce the number of messages sent to a fusion center (FC). The problem of interest is to jointly design the compression matrices associated with those sensors, aiming at minimizing the estimation error at the FC. Such a dimensionality reduction problem is investigated in this paper. Specifically, we study a homogeneous environment where all sensors have identical noise covariance matrices and an inhomogeneous environment where the noise covariance matrices across the sensors have the same correlation structure but with different scaling factors. Given a total number of messages sent to the FC, theoretical lower bounds on the estimation error of any compression...
