Two Stage Multi Sensor Detection Scheme for Large Scale WSN Using Spatial Proximity
Intuition suggests that in a large-size sensor network, event signal spreads over a sub-region known as event region. The sub-set of sensors inside the event region is located close to each other in the form of a cluster. On the contrary, the reports from the rest of the sensors that are far away from the event will be less credible and prone to faulty detection. In this work, such fact is exploited to improve the detection performance of the detection schemes at the fusion center by proposing a two-stage detection mechanism. In other words, the proposed two-stage detection scheme exploits the spatial proximity of the event region sensors. Numerical results are provided to assess the detection performance of the proposed scheme that shows that the proposed detection scheme has a superior performance over the traditional detection schemes.
