Abstract

We describe a decentralized learning-based activation algorithm for a ZigBee-enabled unattended ground sensor network. Sensor nodes learn to monitor their environment in a low-power "sleep" mode, until an intruder is detected, then enter a full-power mode only if the benefit for doing so outweighs an energy cost. Our formulation accounts for the energy required to transmit and the probability of successful transmission in a crowded ZigBee network. Since these depend on the activity of other nodes, we propose a decentralized adaptive algorithm for sensor activation based on game theoretic principles. We show that the algorithm tracks the time-varying set of correlated equilibria of the problem, and illustrate performance through simulation. The algorithm is described as a stochastic approximation, with attendant differential inclusion analysis.
