Abstract:

In this paper we consider the problem of combining and updating estimates that may have been generated in a distributed fashion or may represent estimates, generated at different times, of the same process sample path. The first of these cases has applications in decentralized estimation, while the second has applications in updating maps of spatially-distributed random quantities given measurements along several tracks. The method of solution for the second problem uses the result of the first, and the similarity in the formulation and solution of these problems emphasizes the conceptual similarity between many problems in decentralized control and in the analysis of random fields.
