Fault in Sensor Networks [Report]

NESL Technical Report #: 2006-6-1


Abstract: This report was a precursor to Chapter 3 in Laura Balzano's masters thesis. Please refer to the thesis for a more complete write-up.

Faulty data is prevalent in sensor networks, but a careful study of the failure modes and theory to address the impact of the faulty data on data collection, aggregation, and fusion has been neglected. This technical report provides a simple model for data faults, and then looks at simple preliminary analysis of aggregation in the presence of these faults. This is a DRAFT VERSION.
