Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Abstract

Distributed source coding has been viewed as an important and challenging technique for the problem of signal recovery in wireless sensor networks, due to limited network bandwidth, processing capability and power. In this paper, the problem of signal recovery in wireless sensor networks is studied by leverage of side information and distributed source coding. The available bandwidth and packet loss rate are assumed to be changing in the delivery path from remote sensors to sink. We first analyze the impact of quantization, random binning and transmission on the quality of estimated signal. Then we propose an adaptive control scheme to trade off bandwidth on quantization, random binning and transmission under specific network scenarios. Numerical results validate the effectiveness of the proposed adaptive control scheme on minimizing system distortion.
