21 September 2007 Flow-rate control for managing communications in tracking and surveillance networks
Author Affiliations +
This paper describes a primal-dual distributed algorithm for managing communications in a bandwidth-limited sensor network for tracking and surveillance. The algorithm possesses some scale-invariance properties and adaptive gains that make it more practical for applications such as tracking where the conditions change over time. A simulation study comparing this algorithm with a priority-queue-based approach in a network tracking scenario shows significant improvement in the resulting track quality when using flow control to manage communications.
