On Balancing Energy Efficiency and Estimation Error in Compressed Sensing
Compressed Sensing (CS) refers to the process of reconstructing a signal that is supposed to be sparse or compressible. CS has wide applications, such as in cognitive radio networks. In this paper, the authors investigate effective CS schemes for balancing energy efficiency and estimation error. They propose an enhancement to a Bayesian estimation approach and an enhancement to the isotonic regression approach that is based on nearly isotonic regression. They also show how to compute the routing matrix for selecting active sensor nodes. The proposed enhancements are evaluated with trace-driven simulations. Considerable gaps are observed between the original approaches and the proposed enhancements in the simulation results.
