Robust sensor placement for signal extraction


This paper proposes an efficient algorithm for robust sensor placement with the purpose of recovering a source signal from noisy measurements. To model uncertainty on the spatially-variant sensors gain and on the spatially correlated noise, we assume that both are realizations of Gaussian processes. Since the signal to noise ratio (SNR) is also uncertain in this context, to achieve a robust signal extraction, we propose a new placement criterion based on the maximization of the probability that the SNR exceeds a given threshold. This criterion can be easily evaluated using the Gaussian process assumption. Moreover, to reduce the computational complexity of the joint maximization of the criterion with respect to all sensor positions, we suggest a sequential maximization approach, where the sensor positions are chosen one at a time. Finally, we present numerical results showing the superior robustness of the proposed approach when compared to standard sensor placement criteria aimed at interpolating the spatial gain and to a recently proposed criterion aimed at maximizing the average SNR. Index Terms-sensor placement, source extraction, signal to noise ratio, Gaussian processes.
