Title: An Information processing approach to distributed detection
Author: Lexa, Michael; Johnson, Don
Type: Conference Paper
Keywords: distributed detection; information processing
Citation: M. Lexa and D. Johnson,"An Information processing approach to distributed detection," in Statistical Signal Processing Workshop,
Abstract: We apply the recent theory of information processing to a hybrid distributed detection architecture that combines the traditional parallel and tandem architectures. Central to this theory is the Kullback-Leibler discrimination distance and quantity known as the information transfer ratio, defined as defined as the ratio of the KL distances between the distributions characterizing the input and output of a system. We characterize the asymptotic performance of proposed hybrid system and compare it with the performance of the parallel, tandem and centralized architectures. We conclude with an illustrative example.
