A Decentralized Collaborative Receive Beamforming Technique for Wireless Sensor Networks Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • A collaborative receive beamforming technique is proposed that lends itself to a distributed implementation in wireless sensor networks (WSNs). In the first time slot, the transmitter of interest along with several interfering terminals send their signals while in the second time slot K nodes multiply their received signals with properly selected beamforming weights and forward the resulting signals to the receiver. The beamforming weights are selected such that they depend only on the locally-available knowledge at the relaying nodes while aiming to maximize the signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) at the receiver. The beampattern expression is obtained and its analytical properties are studied. © 2010 IEEE.
