Sensor placement minimizing the state estimation mean square error: Performance guarantees of greedy solutions [article]

Akira Kohara, Kunihisa Okano, Kentaro Hirata, Yukinori Nakamura
2020 arXiv   pre-print
By using the properties of the MSE function, we approximately compute these quantities and derive a performance guarantee for the greedy solutions.  ...  Since the MSE function is not submodular nor supermodular, the well-known performance guarantees for the greedy solutions do not hold in the present case.  ...  Acknowledgment: The authors would like to thank the anonymous reviewers for their helpful comments, especially on the proof of Theorem 1.  ...

Near-Optimal Sensor Placement for Linear Inverse Problems

Juri Ranieri, Amina Chebira, Martin Vetterli
2014 IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing  
Unfortunately, the selection of the optimal sensor locations is intrinsically combinatorial and the available approximation algorithms are not guaranteed to generate good solutions in all cases of interest  ...  The number of sensors is often limited by physical or economical constraints and their placement is of fundamental importance to obtain accurate estimates.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT The authors would like to thank Ivan Dokmanić and Prof. Ola Svensson whose suggestions were fundamental to strengthen the results described in the paper.  ...

2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The target computing platforms for this application have motivated limited-memory techniques that can optimize large-scale sensor placement problems.  ...  These include the scale of problem instances, which in practice drives the development of approximate solution techniques, and constraints imposed by the target computing platforms.  ...  Thus, the time needed for simulation does not impact the time spent performing sensor placement.  ...
