Compressed Data Aggregation: Energy-Efficient and High-Fidelity Data Collection

Download Now Free registration required

Executive Summary

The authors focus on Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) that perform data collection with the objective of obtaining the whole dataset at the sink (as opposed to a function of the dataset). In this case, energy-efficient data collection requires the use of data aggregation. Whereas many data aggregation schemes have been investigated, they either compromise the fidelity of the recovered data or require complicated in-network compressions. In this paper, they propose a novel data aggregation scheme that exploits Compressed Sensing (CS) to achieve both recovery fidelity and energy efficiency in WSNs with arbitrary topology.
