Distributed Estimation and Coding: A Sequential Framework Based on a Side-Informed Decomposition

The authors propose a sequential framework for the distributed multiple-sensor estimation and coding problem that decomposes the problem into a series of side-informed source coding problems and enables construction of good codecs. The construction relies on a separation result for the simplified scenario where information from one sensor is to be sent to the CP that already has information regarding the desired signal. They show that the optimal encoder decoder combination, in this setting, can be decomposed, without loss in performance, into two steps: A first preprocessing step to extract relevant information from the indirect observation with consideration of the side information, followed by a second step of side-informed encoding of the preprocessed output.
