Sensor networks are being deployed for tracking events of interest in many environmental or monitoring applications. Because of their distributed nature of operation, a challenging issue is how to accurately identify the aggregate state of the phenomenon that is being observed. This work presents an online mechanism for efficiently determining the overall network status, employing distributed operations that minimize the communication costs. Experiments on real data, suggest that the proposed metholology can be a viable solution for real world systems. © 2006 IEEE.
