Abstract

We address a lifetime maximization problem for a single-hop wireless sensor network where multiple sensors encode and communicate their measurements of a Gaussian random source to a Fusion Centre (FC). The FC is required to reconstruct the source within a prescribed distortion threshold. The lifetime optimization problem is formulated as a joint power, rate and timeslot (for TDMA) allocation problem under the constraints of the well known rate distortion constraints for the Gaussian CEO problem, the capacity constraints of the wireless links, the energy constraints of the sensor nodes and the strict delay constraint within which the encoded sensor data must arrive at the FC. We study the per..
