In environment monitoring,data from multiple sensors are critical. Transmitting all sensors data in timely fashion is difficult due to bandwidth constraint. So, it is critical to best utilize the bandwidth to transmit the data . We consider sensor networks where each sensor quantizes its local observation into one bit, and transmit it to a central node through the channel where the estimate of parameter is made based on the received data. We design optimal distributed system in Bayes framework under different channel quality setting. We demonstrate the robustness and efficiency of our designs via both theoretical derivation and numerical validation.
