Abstract:

This report examines the discrimination capability of a network of two sensors connected in series, A model of a traffic-limited sensor is developed and then used to quantify the deleterious effect of high traffic levels on the performance of the sensor. Various combinations of two sensors are compared, and for moderate inventory levels, a low quality bulk filter followed by a high-quality, traffic-limited precision sensor yields the best performance.
