Cooperative Relaying in Sensor Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Reliable transmission of a discrete memoryless source over a multiple-relay network is considered. Motivated by sensor network applications, it is assumed that the relays and the destination all have access to side information correlated with the underlying source signal. Joint source-channel cooperative transmission is studied in which the relays help the transmission of the source signal to the destination by using both their overheard signals, as in the classical channel cooperation scenario, and the available correlated side information.
