    Feed-forward and feedback control in astrocytes for Ca2+-based molecular communications nanonetworks2018In: IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology & Bioinformatics, ISSN 1545-5963, E-ISSN 1557-9964Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Synaptic plasticity depends on the gliotransmitters' concentration in the synaptic channel. And, an abnormal concentration of gliotransmitters is linked to neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and epilepsy. In this paper, a theoretical investigation of the cause of the abnormal concentration of gliotransmitters and how to achieve its control is presented through a Ca2+-signalling-based molecular communications framework. A feed-forward and feedback control technique is used to manipulate IP3 values to stabilise the concentration of Ca2+ inside the astrocytes. The theoretical analysis of the given model aims i) to stabilize the Ca2+ concentration around a particular desired level in order to prevent abnormal gliotransmitters' concentration (extremely high or low concentration can result in neurodegeneration), ii) to improve the molecular communication performance that utilises Ca2+ signalling, and maintain gliotransmitters' regulation remotely. It shows that the refractory periods from Ca2+ can be maintained to lower the noise propagation resulting in smaller time-slots for bit transmission, which can also improve the delay and gain performances. The proposed approach can potentially lead to novel nanomedicine solutions for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, where a combination of nanotechnology and gene therapy approaches can be used to elicit the regulated Ca2+ signalling in astrocytes, ultimately improving neuronal activity.

    Set point regulation of astrocyte intracellular Ca2+ signalling2017In: Proceedings / 2017 IEEE 17Th International Conference On Nanotechnology (IEEE-NANO), 2017, p. 315-320Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Neurodegenerative diseases are the current centre of attention in medicine due to their increased physiological and psychological burden on the ageing society and in the other hand the lack of efficient treatment to them. In parallel, nanotechnology opens possibilities to study neurodegeneration in the molecular level and uncover cellular properties at the nanoscale that possibly allow disease control using novel system biology methods. The communication between neurons and astrocytes explains how a failure in their communication impact neuronal activity, and how the intracellular Ca2+ signalling of astrocytes can interfere in the synaptic quality. This paper presents a theoretical investigation of a feed forward and feedback control technique to regulate the quantity of IP3 that determines the concentration of Ca2+ emitted from intracellular signalling. The analysis of the control model showed that the quantity of Ca2+ signalling can be stabilised at a desired level. A potential application is to facilitate the Ca2+ concentration around this desired level to maintain cellular homoeostasis for longer periods of time, which can lead to a technology for preventing neurodegenerative diseases. The proposed approach can result in novel solutions for both nanobiology and nanomedicine development, where synthetic biology can be used to program the control functionality into the cells. Other ways of implementing such technology are also explored, including nanoparticles, implantable devices and molecular communications.

    A decentralized optimization framework for energy harvesting devices2018In: IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing, ISSN 1536-1233, E-ISSN 1558-0660, Vol. 17, no 11, p. 2483-2496Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Designing decentralized policies for wireless communication networks is a crucial problem, which has only been partially solved in the literature so far. In this paper, we propose a Decentralized Markov Decision Process (Dec-MDP) framework to analyze a wireless sensor network with multiple users which access a common wireless channel. We consider devices with energy harvesting capabilities, that aim at balancing the energy arrivals with the data departures and with the probability of colliding with other nodes. Over time, an access point triggers a SYNC slot, wherein it recomputes the optimal transmission parameters of the whole network, and distributes this information. Every node receives its own policy, which specifies how it should access the channel in the future, and, thereafter, proceeds in a fully decentralized fashion, with no interactions with other entities in the network. We propose a multi-layer Markov model, where an external MDP manages the jumps between SYNC slots, and an internal Dec-MDP computes the optimal policy in the short term. We numerically show that, because of the harvesting, stationary policies are suboptimal in energy harvesting scenarios, and the optimal trade-off lies between an orthogonal and a random access system.

    Decentralized Transmission Policies for Energy Harvesting Devices2017In: 2017 Ieee Wireless Communications And Networking Conference Workshops (WCNCW), IEEE , 2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The problem of finding decentralized transmission policies in a wireless communication network with energy harvesting constraints is formulated and solved using the decentralized Markov decision process framework. The proposed policy defines the transmission strategies of all devices so as to correctly balance the collision probabilities with the energy constraints. After an initial coordination phase, in which the network parameters are initialized for all devices, every node proceeds in a fully decentralized fashion. We numerically show that, unlike in the case without energy constraints where a fully orthogonal scheme can be shown to be optimal, in the presence of energy harvesting this is no longer the best choice, and the optimal strategy lies between an orthogonal and a completely symmetric system.

    Sum Throughput Maximization in a Cognitive Multiple Access Channel With Cooperative Spectrum Sensing and Energy Harvesting2019In: IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON COGNITIVE COMMUNICATIONS AND NETWORKING, ISSN 2332-7731, Vol. 5, no 2, p. 382-399Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper focuses on the problem of sensing throughput optimization in a fading multiple access cognitive radio (CR) network, where the secondary user (SU) transmitters participate in cooperative spectrum sensing and are capable of harvesting energy and sharing energy with each other. We formulate the optimization problem as a maximization of the expected achievable sum-rate over a finite horizon, subject to an average interference constraint at the primary receiver, peak power constraints, and energy causality constraints at the SU transmitters. The optimization problem is a non-convex, mixed integer non-linear program (MINLP) involving the binary action to sense the spectrum or not, and the continuous variables, such as the transmission power, shared energy, and sensing time. The problem is analyzed under two different assumptions on the available information pattern: 1) non-causal channel state information (CSI), energy state information (ESI), and infinite battery capacity and 2) the more realistic scenario of the causal CSI/ESI and finite battery. In the non-casual case, this problem can be solved by an exhaustive search over the decision variable or an MINLP solver for smaller problem dimensions, and a novel heuristic policy for larger problems, combined with an iterative alternative optimization method for the continuous variables. The causal case with finite battery is optimally solved using a dynamic programming (DP) methodology, whereas a number of sub-optimal algorithms are proposed to reduce the computational complexity of DP. Extensive numerical simulations are carried out to illustrate the performance of the proposed algorithms. One of the main findings indicates that the energy sharing is more beneficial when there is a significant asymmetry between average harvested energy levels/channel gains of different SUs.

    Quantized non-Bayesian quickest change detection with energy harvesting2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper focuses on the analysis of an optimal sensing and quantization strategy in a multi-sensor network where each individual sensor sends its quantized log-likelihood information to the fusion center (FC) for non-Bayesian quickest change detection. It is assumed that the sensors are equipped with a battery/energy storage device of finite capacity, capable of harvesting energy from the environment. The FC is assumed to have access to either non-causal or causal channel state information (CSI) and energy state information (ESI) from all the sensors while performing the quickest change detection. The primary observations are assumed to be generated from a sequence of random variables whose probability distribution function changes at an unknown time point. The objective of the detection problem is to minimize the average detection delay of the change point with respect to a lower bound on the rate of false alarm. In this framework, the optimal sensing decision and number of quantization bits for information transmission can be determined with the constraint of limited available energy due to finite battery capacity. This optimization is formulated as a stochastic control problem and is solved using dynamic programming algorithms for both non-causal and causal CSI and ESI scenario. A set of non-linear equations is also derived to determine the optimal quantization thresholds for the sensor log-likelihood ratios, by maximizing an appropriate Kullback-Leibler (KL) divergence measure between the distributions before and after the change. A uniform threshold quantization strategy is also proposed as a simple sub-optimal policy. The simulation results indicate that the optimal quantization is preferable when the number of quantization bits is low as its performance is significantly better compared to its uniform counterpart in terms of average detection delay. For the case of a large number of quantization bits, the performance benefits of using the optimal quantization as compared to its uniform counterpart diminish, as expected.

    Sensing Throughput Optimization in Cognitive Fading Multiple Access Channels With Energy Harvesting Secondary Transmitters2016In: 2016 24Th European Signal Processing Conference (EUSIPCO), 2016, p. 577-581Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper investigates the problem of maximizing the expected achievable sum rate in a fading multiple access cognitive radio network when secondary user (SU) transmitters have energy harvesting capability, and perform cooperative spectrum sensing. We formulate the problem as maximization of throughput of the cognitive multiple access network over a finite time horizon subject to a time averaged interference constraint at the primary user (PU) and almost sure energy causality constraints at the SUs. The problem is a mixed integer non-linear program with respect to two decision variables, namely, spectrum access decision and spectrum sensing decision, and the continuous variables sensing time and transmission power. In general, this problem is known to be NP hard. For optimization over these two decision variables, we use an exhaustive search policy when the length of the time horizon is small, and a heuristic policy for longer horizons. For given values of the decision variables, the problem simplifies into a joint optimization on SU transmission power and sensing time, which is non-convex in nature. We present an analytic solution for the resulting optimization problem using an alternating convex optimization problem for non-causal channel state information and harvested energy information patterns at the SU base station (SBS) or fusion center (FC) and infinite battery capacity at the SU transmitters. We formulate the problem with causal information and finite battery capacity as a stochastic control problem and solve it using the technique of dynamic programming. Numerical results are presented to illustrate the performance of the various algorithms.

    Massive MIMO Channel-Aware Decision Fusion2015In: IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, ISSN 1053-587X, E-ISSN 1941-0476, Vol. 63, no 3, p. 604-619Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we provide a study of channel-aware decision fusion (DF) over a "virtual" multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channel in the large-array regime at the DF center (DFC). The considered scenario takes into account channel estimation and inhomogeneous large-scale fading between the sensors and the DFC. The aim is the development of (widely) linear fusion rules, as opposed to the unsuitable optimum log-likelihood ratio (LLR). The proposed rules can effectively benefit from performance improvement via a large array, differently from existing suboptimal alternatives. Performance evaluation, along with theoretical achievable performance and complexity analysis, is presented. Simulation results are provided to confirm the findings. Analogies and differences with uplink communication in a multiuser (massive) MIMO scenario are underlined.

    Abstract [en]

    We study channel-aware decision fusion over a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channel in the large-array regime at the decision-fusion center (DFC). Inhomogeneous large-scale fading between the sensors and the DFC is consider in addition to the small-scale fading, and pilot-based channel estimation is performed at the DFC. Linear processing techniques are analyzed in order to design low-complexity alternatives to the optimum log-likelihood ratio test (LLRT). Performance evaluation based on Monte Carlo simulations are presented.

    Feedback Control Over Lossy SNR-Limited Channels: Linear Encoder-Decoder-Controller Design2017In: IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, ISSN 0018-9286, E-ISSN 1558-2523, Vol. 62, no 6, p. 3054-3061Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we consider the problem of encoding and decoding codesign for linear feedback control of a scalar, possibly unstable, stochastic linear system when the sensed signal is to be transmitted over a finite capacity communication channel. In particular, we consider a limited capacity channel which transmits quantized data and is subject to packet losses. We first characterize the optimal strategy when perfect channel feedback is available, i.e., the transmitter has perfect knowledge of the packet loss history. This optimal scheme, innovation forwarding hereafter, is reminiscent of differential pulse-code modulation schemes adapted to deal with state space models, and is strictly better than a scheme which simply transmits the measured data, called measurement forwarding (MF) hereafter. Comparison in terms of control cost as well as of critical regimes, i.e., regimes where the cost is not finite, are provided. We also consider and compare two popular suboptimal schemes from the existing literature, based on 1) state estimate forwarding and 2) measurement forwarding, which ignore quantization effects in the associated estimator and controller design. In particular, it is shown that surprisingly the suboptimal MF strategy is always better then the suboptimal state forwarding strategy for small signal-to-quantization-noise-ratios.

    Stochastic game in remote estimation under DoS attacks2017In: IEEE Control Systems Letters, Vol. 1, no 1, p. 146-151Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This letter studies remote state estimation under denial-of-service (DoS) attacks. A sensor transmits its local estimate of an underlying physical process to a remote estimator via a wireless communication channel. A DoS attacker is capable to interfere the channel and degrades the remote estimation accuracy. Considering the tactical jamming strategies played by the attacker, the sensor adjusts its transmission power. This interactive process between the sensor and the attacker is studied in the framework of a zero-sum stochastic game. To derive their optimal power schemes, we first discuss the existence of stationary Nash equilibrium for this game. We then present the monotone structure of the optimal strategies, which helps reduce the computational complexity of the stochastic game algorithm. Numerical examples are provided to illustrate the obtained results.

    DoS attacks on remote state estimation with asymmetric information2019In: IEEE Transactions on Control of Network Systems, ISSN 2325-5870, Vol. 6, no 2, p. 653-666Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract: In this paper, we consider remote state estimation in an adversarial environment. A sensor forwards local state estimates to a remote estimator over a vulnerable network, which may be congested by an intelligent denial-of-service (DoS) attacker. It is assumed that the acknowledgement information from the remote estimator to the sensor is hidden from the attacker, which thus leads to asymmetric information between the sensor and attacker. Considering the infinite-time goals of the two agents and their asymmetric information structure, we model the conflicting nature between the sensor and the attacker by a stochastic Bayesian game. Solutions for this game under two different structures of public information history are investigated, that is, the open-loop structure (in which players cannot observe their opponents' play) and the closed-loop one (in which players can observe the play causally). For the open-loop history case, the original game problem is transformed into a static Bayesian game. We provide the unique mixed-strategy equilibrium explicitly for this game, and analyze the sensor's advantages brought by the extra information. When it comes to the closed-loo

    Multi-sensor Transmission Management for Remote State Estimation under Coordination2017In: IFAC-PapersOnLine, ISSN 1045-0823, E-ISSN 1797-318X, Vol. 50, no 1, p. 3829-3834Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper considers the remote state estimation in a cyber-physical system (CPS) using multiple sensors. The measurements of each sensor are transmitted to a remote estimator over a shared channel, where simultaneous transmissions from other sensors are regarded as interference signals. In such a competitive environment, each sensor needs to choose its transmission power for sending data packets taking into account of other sensors’ behavior. To model this interactive decision-making process among the sensors, we introduce a multi-player non-cooperative game framework. To overcome the inefficiency arising from the Nash equilibrium (NE) solution, we propose a correlation policy, along with the notion of correlation equilibrium (CE). An analytical comparison of the game value between the NE and the CE is provided, with/without the power expenditure constraints for each sensor. Also, numerical simulations demonstrate the comparison results.

    A multi-channel transmission schedule for remote state estimation under DoS attacks2017In: Automatica, ISSN 0005-1098, E-ISSN 1873-2836, Vol. 78, p. 194-201Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper considers a cyber-physical system (CPS) under denial-of-service (DoS) attacks. The measurements of a sensor are transmitted to a remote estimator over a multi-channel network, which may be congested by a malicious attacker. Among these multiple communication paths with different characteristics and properties at each time step, the sensor needs to choose a single channel for sending data packets while reducing the probability of being attacked. In the meanwhile, the attacker needs to decide the target channel to jam under an energy budget constraint. To model this interactive decision making process between the two sides, we formulate a two-player zero-sum stochastic game framework. A Nash Q-learning algorithm is proposed to tackle the computation complexity when solving the optimal strategies for both players. Numerical examples are provided to illustrate the obtained results.

    A Secure Cross-Layer Design for Remote Estimation under DoS Attack: When Multi-sensor meets Multi-channel2016In: 2016 IEEE 55Th Conference On Decision And Control (CDC), New York: IEEE, 2016, p. 6297-6302Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper considers security issues of a cyberphysical system (CPS) under denial-of-service (DoS) attacks. The measurements of multiple sensors are transmitted to a remote estimator over a multi-channel network, which may be congested by an intelligent attacker. Aiming at improving the estimation accuracy, we first propose a novel aggregation scheme for the estimator to produce accurate state estimates, from which we obtain a closed-form expression of the expected estimation error covariance. We further develop a sensor attacker game to design the cooperative and defensive channel selection strategy, which avoids the sensors being attacked in an energy-efficient way. Numerical examples are provided to illustrate the developed results.

    Power allocation for distributed detection systems in wireless sensor networks with limited fusion centre feedback2018In: IEEE Transactions on Communications, ISSN 0090-6778, E-ISSN 1558-0857, Vol. 66, no 10, p. 4753-4766Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We consider a distributed detection system for a wireless sensor network over slow-fading channels. Each sensor only has knowledge of quantized channel state information (CSI) which is received from the fusion center via a limited feedback channel. We then consider transmit power allocation at each sensor in order to maximize a J-divergence based detection metric subject to a total and individual transmit power constraints. Our aim is to jointly design the quantization regions of all sensors CSI and the corresponding power allocations. A locally optimum solution is obtained by applying the generalized Lloyd algorithm (GLA). To overcome the high computational complexity of the GLA, we then propose a low-complexity near-optimal scheme which performs very close to its GLA based counterpart. This enables us to explicitly formulate the problem and to find the unique solution despite the non-convexity of the optimization problem. An asymptotic analysis is also provided when the number of feedback bits becomes large. Numerical results illustrate that only a small amount of feedback is needed to achieve a detection performance close to the full CSI case.

    Distortion outage minimization in distributed estimation with estimation secrecy outage constraints2017In: IEEE Transactions on Signal and Information Processing over Networks, E-ISSN 2373-776X, Vol. 3, no 1, p. 12-24Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we investigate a class of distortion outage minimization problems for a wireless sensor network in the presence of an eavesdropper. The observation signals transmitted from the sensors to the fusion center (FC) are overheard by the eavesdropper. Both the FC and the eavesdropper reconstruct minimum mean squared error estimates of the physical quantity observed. We address the problem of transmit power allocation to minimize the distortion outage at the FC, subject to an expected total transmit power constraint across the sensor(s) and a secrecy outage constraint at the eavesdropper. Applying a rigorous probabilistic power allocation technique, we derive power policies for the full channel state information (CSI) case. Suboptimal power control policies are studied for the partial CSI case in order to reduce the high computational cost associated with large numbers of sensors or receive antennas. Numerical results show that significantly improved performance can be achieved by adding multiple receive antennas at the FC. In the case of multiple transmit antennas, the distortion outage at the FC can be dramatically reduced and in some cases completely eliminated, by transmitting the observations on the null space of the eavesdropper's channel or deploying an artificial noise technique, in the full CSI and partial CSI cases, respectively.

    Estimation in Wireless Sensor Networks With Security Constraints2017In: IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems, ISSN 0018-9251, E-ISSN 1557-9603, Vol. 53, no 2, p. 544-561Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we investigate the performance of distributed estimation schemes in a wireless sensor network in the presence of an eavesdropper. The sensors transmit observations to the fusion center (FC), which at the same time are overheard by the eavesdropper. Both the FC and the eavesdropper reconstruct a minimum mean-squared error estimate of the physical quantity observed. We address the problem of transmit power allocation for system performance optimization subject to a total average power constraint on the sensor(s), and a security/secrecy constraint on the eavesdropper. We mainly focus on two scenarios: 1) a single sensor with multiple transmit antennas and 2) multiple sensors with each sensor having a single transmit antenna. For each scenario, given perfect channel state information (CSI) of the FC and full or partial CSI of the eavesdropper, we derive the transmission policies for short-term and long-term cases. For the long-term power allocation case, when the sensor is equipped with multiple antennas, we can achieve zero information leakage in the full CSI case, and dramatically enhance the system performance by deploying the artificial noise technique for the partial CSI case. Asymptotic expressions are derived for the long-term distortion at the FC as the number of sensors or the number of antennas becomes large. In addition, we also consider multiple-sensor multiple-antenna scenario, and simulations show that given the same total number of transmitting antennas the multiple-antenna sensor network is superior to the performance of the multiple-sensor single-antenna network.

    Power Allocation for Estimation Outage Minimization with Secrecy Outage Constraints2016In: 2016 Australian Communications Theory Workshop (AusCTW), New York: IEEE, 2016, p. 71-76Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we investigate the distortion outage minimization problem for a wireless sensor network (WSN) in the presence of an eavesdropper. The observation signals transmitted from the sensors to the fusion center (FC) are overheard by the eavesdropper. Both the FC and the eavesdropper reconstruct minimum mean squared error (MMSE) estimates of the physical quantity observed. We address the problem of transmit power allocation to minimize the distortion outage at the FC, subject to a long-term transmit power constraint among the sensors and a secrecy outage constraint at the eavesdropper. Applying a rigorous probabilistic power allocation technique we derive power policies for the full channel state information (CSI) case. Additional suboptimal power control policies are studied for the partial CSI case in order to reduce the high computational cost as the number of sensors or receive antennas grows. Numerical results show better performance can be achieved by adding multiple receive antennas at the FC.

    Sum Rate Maximization for Cognitive MISO Broadcast Channels: Beamforming Design and Large Systems Analysis2014In: IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, ISSN 1536-1276, E-ISSN 1558-2248, Vol. 13, no 5, p. 2383-2401Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper considers the ergodic weighted sum rate maximization (WSRMax) problem for an underlay cognitive radio multiple input single output (MISO) broadcast channel. In this setting, a secondary network, consisting of a base-station with M transmit antennas and K single-antenna secondary users (SUs), is allowed to share the same spectrum with a primary user (PU), under an average total transmit power (ATTP) constraint and an average interference power (AIP) constraint at the PU receiver. We show that the ATTP constraint always remains active, and as the maximum ATTP P-av -> infinity, the ergodic WSR approaches infinity similar to conventional non-CR networks. We propose a novel low-complexity suboptimal beamforming scheme termed "Partially-Projected & Regularized Zero-Forcing Beamforming" (PP-RZFBF) with a close-form beamformer, by combining the regularized zero-forcing (RZF) with the channel projection idea, to achieve a tradeoff between maximizing secondary throughput and suppressing secondary multiuser interference as well as the interference on PU. In order to analyze and optimize the performance of this scheme, we employ the large system analysis technique, in the limit as M and K approach infinity with a fixed ratio r = K/M. This allows us to derive deterministic limiting approximations for the PP-RZFBF problem which enables us to determine asymptotically optimal beamformers for PP-RZFBF. In the large system limit, for the PP-RZFBF scheme, we also find that as P-av -> infinity, the interference on PU caused by the secondary transmission is asymptotically removed. A special suboptimal beamforming scheme called "CZFBF" is also considered, which involves zero forcing all the interference, including the secondary multiuser interference as well as the interference imposed on PU. Various interesting comparisons between PP-RZFBF and CZFBF are provided. Numerical simulations illustrate that the asymptotically optimal beamformers for the PP-RZFBF scheme provide an excellent performance even for finite-sized systems.

    Optimal energy allocation for linear control with packet loss under energy harvesting constraints2017In: Automatica, ISSN 0005-1098, E-ISSN 1873-2836, Vol. 77, p. 259-267Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper studies a closed loop linear control system over a lossy communication link. A sensor computes a state estimate of the observed discrete-time system and sends it (in the form of packetized transmission) to the controller in the receiver block over a randomly time-varying (fading) packet dropping link. The receiver sends an ACK/NACK packet to the transmitter over an acknowledgement channel which might also be prone to packet loss. It is assumed that the energy used in packet transmission depletes a battery of limited capacity at the sensor, but is also replenished by an energy harvester which has access to a source of everlasting but random harvested energy. Under an assumption of finite-state Markov chain models of the energy harvesting and the fading channel gain processes, the objective is to design an optimal energy allocation policy at the transmitter and an optimal control policy at the receiver so that an average infinite horizon linear quadratic Gaussian (LQG) control cost is minimized. It is shown that in the case of perfect channel feedback a separation principle holds, the optimal LQG controller is linear and the optimal energy allocation policy at the transmitter can be obtained via solving the Bellman dynamic programming equation. A Q-learning algorithm is used to approximate the optimal energy allocation policy in case the system parameters are unknown. Numerical simulation examples show that the dynamic programming based policies outperform various simple heuristic policies, especially at higher battery capacities.

    Optimal sensor transmission energy allocation for linear control over a packet dropping link with energy harvesting2015In: 2015 54Th IEEE Conference On Decision And Control (CDC), 2015, p. 1199-1204Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper studies a closed loop linear control system. The sensor computes a state estimate and sends it to the controller/actuator in the receiver block over a randomly fading packet dropping link. The receiver sends an ACK/NACK packet to the transmitter over a link. It is assumed that the transmission energy per packet at the sensor depletes a battery of limited capacity, replenished by an energy harvester. The objective is to design an optimal energy allocation policy and an optimal control policy so that a finite horizon LQG control cost is minimized. It is shown that in case the receiver to sensor feedback channel is free of errors, a separation principle holds. Hence, the optimal LQG controller is linear, the Kalman filter is optimal and the optimal energy allocation policy is obtained via solving a backward dynamic programming equation. In case the feedback channel is erroneous, the separation principle does not hold. In this case, we propose a suboptimal policy where the controller still uses a linear control, and the transmitter minimizes an expected sum of the trace of an "estimated" receiver state estimation error covariance matrix. Simulations are used to illustrate the relative performance of the proposed algorithms and various heuristic algorithms for both the perfect and imperfect feedback cases. It is seen that the dynamic programming based policies outperform the simple heuristic policies by a margin.

    Distortion Minimization in Multi-Sensor Estimation Using Energy Harvesting and Energy Sharing2015In: IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, ISSN 1053-587X, E-ISSN 1941-0476, Vol. 63, no 11, p. 2848-2863Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates an optimal energy allocation problem for multisensor estimation of a random source where sensors communicate their measurements to a remote fusion center (FC) over orthogonal fading wireless channels using uncoded analog transmissions. The FC reconstructs the source using the best linear unbiased estimator (BLUE). The sensors have limited batteries but can harvest energy and also transfer energy to other sensors in the network. A distortion minimization problem over a finite-time horizon with causal and noncausal centralized information is studied and the optimal energy allocation policy for transmission and sharing is derived. Several structural necessary conditions for optimality are presented for the two sensor problem with noncausal information and a horizon of two time steps. A decentralized energy allocation algorithm is also presented where each sensor has causal information of its own channel gain and harvested energy levels and has statistical information about the channel gains and harvested energies of the remaining sensors. Various other suboptimal energy allocation policies are also proposed for reducing the computational complexity of dynamic programming based solutions to the energy allocation problems with causal information patterns. Numerical simulations are included to illustrate the theoretical results. These illustrate that energy sharing can reduce the distortion at the FC when sensors have asymmetric fading channels and asymmetric energy harvesting processes.

    Abstract [en]

    In a cyber-physical system, there are potential sources of malicious attacks that can damage the estimation quality in an underlying network control system. The attacker aims to maximize these damages while the estimator attempts to minimize them. In this paper we define an attack's stealth based on the KL divergence and obtain an optimal attack. Furthermore, we suggest one method in which the estimator may limit the damage to the system while imposing on any attack a probability for it to be non-stealthy.

    Abstract [en]

    In a cyber-physical system, security problems are of vital importance as the failure of such system can have catastrophic effects. Detection methods can be employed to sense the existence of an attack. In a previous study of an attack on the controller while avoiding detection in scalar systems under a certain control assumption, the notion of epsilon-stealthiness was introduced and the strength of epsilon-stealthy attacks was fully characterized. We generalize to the vector system and prove the cases in which we show that the limitations of epsilon-stealthy attack do not extend, in the sense that epsilon-stealthy can inflict damage of arbitrary magnitude to a vector system.

    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we consider state estimation of a discrete time linear system using multiple sensors, where the sensors quantize their individual innovations, which are then combined at the fusion center to form a global state estimate. We prove the stability of the estimation scheme under sufficiently high bit rates. We obtain asymptotic approximations for the error covariance matrix that relates the system parameters and quantization levels used by the different sensors. Numerical results show close agreement with the true error covariance for quantization at high rates. An optimal rate allocation problem amongst the different sensors is also considered.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper studies a remote state estimation problem where a sensor, equipped with energy harvesting capabilities, observes a dynamical process and transmits local state estimates over a packet dropping channel to a remote estimator. The objective is to decide, at every discrete time instant, whether the sensor should transmit or not, in order to minimize the expected estimation error covariance at the remote estimator over a finite horizon, subject to constraints on the sensor’s battery energy governed by an energy harvesting process. We establish structural results on the optimal scheduling which show that, for a given battery energy level and a given harvested energy, the optimal policy is a threshold policy on the error covariance. Similarly, for a given error covariance and a given harvested energy, the optimal policy is a threshold policy on the current battery level. An extension to the problem of transmission scheduling and control with an energy harvesting sensor is also considered.

    Optimal Transmission Policies for Variance Based Event Triggered Estimation With an Energy Harvesting Sensor2016In: 2016 24Th European Signal Processing Conference (EUSIPCO), 2016, p. 225-229Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper considers a remote state estimation problem where a sensor observes a dynamical process, and transmits local state estimates over an independent and identically distributed (i.i.d.) packet dropping channel to a remote estimator. The sensor is equipped with energy harvesting capabilities. At every discrete time instant, provided there is enough battery energy, the sensor decides whether it should transmit or not, in order to minimize the expected estimation error covariance at the remote estimator. For transmission schedules dependent only on the estimation error covariance at the remote estimator, the energy available at the sensor, and the harvested energy, we establish structural results on the optimal scheduling which show that for a given battery energy level and a given harvested energy, the optimal policy is a threshold policy on the error covariance, i.e. transmit if and only if the error covariance exceeds a certain threshold. Similarly, for a given error covariance and a given harvested energy, the optimal policy is a threshold policy on the battery level. Numerical studies confirm the qualitative behaviour predicted by our structural results.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper considers a remote state estimation problem with multiple sensors observing a dynamical process, where sensors transmit local state estimates over an independent and identically distributed (i.i.d.) packet dropping channel to a remote estimator. At every discrete time instant, the remote estimator decides whether each sensor should transmit or not, with each sensor transmission incurring a fixed energy cost. The channel is shared such that collisions will occur if more than one sensor transmits at a time. Performance is quantified via an optimization problem that minimizes a convex combination of the expected estimation error covariance at the remote estimator and expected energy usage across the sensors. For transmission schedules dependent only on the estimation error covariance at the remote estimator, this work establishes structural results on the optimal scheduling which show that: 1) for unstable systems, if the error covariance is large then a sensor will always be scheduled to transmit and 2) there is a threshold-type behavior in switching from one sensor transmitting to another. Specializing to the single sensor case, these structural results demonstrate that a threshold policy (i.e., transmit if the error covariance exceeds a certain threshold and don't transmit otherwise) is optimal. We also consider the situation where sensors transmit measurements instead of state estimates, and establish structural results including the optimality of threshold policies for the single sensor, scalar case. These results provide a theoretical justification for the use of such threshold policies in variance based event triggered estimation. Numerical studies confirm the qualitative behavior predicted by our structural results.

    Transmission Scheduling for Remote State Estimation over Packet Dropping Links in the Presence of an Eavesdropper2018In: IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, ISSN 0018-9286, E-ISSN 1558-2523Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper studies remote state estimation in the presence of an eavesdropper. A sensor transmits local state estimates over a packet dropping link to a remote estimator, while an eavesdropper can successfully overhear each sensor transmission with a certain probability. The objective is to determine when the sensor should transmit, in order to minimize the estimation error covariance at the remote estimator, while trying to keep the eavesdropper error covariance above a certain level. This is done by solving an optimization problem that minimizes a linear combination of the expected estimation error covariance and the negative of the expected eavesdropper error covariance. Structural results on the optimal transmission policy are derived, and shown to exhibit thresholding behaviour in the estimation error covariances. In the infinite horizon situation, it is shown that with unstable systems one can keep the expected estimation error covariance bounded while the expected eavesdropper error covariance becomes unbounded. An alternative measure of security, constraining the amount of information revealed to the eavesdropper, is also considered, and similar structural results on the optimal transmission policy are derived. In the infinite horizon situation with unstable systems, it is now shown that for any transmission policy which keeps the expected estimation error covariance bounded, the expected amount of information revealed to the eavesdropper is always lower bounded away from zero. An extension of our results to the transmission of measurements is also presented.

    State Estimation Over Markovian Packet Dropping Links in the Presence of an Eavesdropper2017In: 2017 IEEE 56Th Annual Conference On Decision And Control (Cdc), IEEE, 2017, p. 6616-6621Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Remote state estimation problems in the presence of an eavesdropper have recently been studied. In this setup, a sensor transmits over a random packet dropping link to a remote estimator, which at the same time can be randomly overheard by an eavesdropper. For i.i.d. packet dropping links to the remote estimator and to the eavesdropper, it has been shown that with unstable systems one can keep the expected estimation error covariance bounded, while the expected eavesdropper error covariance becomes unbounded in the infinite horizon. In this paper we show that the same behaviour can be achieved when transmission of local state estimates occur over a Markovian packet dropping link, and eavesdropping occurs according to another Markovian packet dropping link.

    On Remote State Estimation in the Presence of an Eavesdropper2017In: IFAC-PapersOnLine, Elsevier, 2017, Vol. 50, no 1, p. 7339-7344Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper studies a remote state estimation problem in the presence of an eavesdropper. A sensor transmits local state estimates over a packet dropping link to a remote estimator, which at the same time can be overheard by an eavesdropper with a certain probability. The objective is to determine when the sensor should transmit, in order to minimize the estimation error covariance at the remote estimator, while trying to keep the eavesdropper error covariance above a certain level. This is done by solving an optimization problem that minimizes a linear combination of the expected estimation error covariance and the negative of the expected eavesdropper error covariance. Structural results on the optimal transmission policy are derived, and shown to exhibit thresholding behaviour in the estimation error covariances. In the infinite horizon situation, it is shown that with unstable systems one can keep the expected estimation error covariance bounded while the expected eavesdropper error covariance becomes unbounded.

    Event-Based Transmission Scheduling and LQG Control Over a Packet Dropping Link2017In: 20th IFAC World Congress / [ed] Denis Dochain, Didier Henrion, Dimitri Peaucelle, Elsevier, 2017, p. 8945-8950Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper studies a joint transmission scheduling and controller design problem, which minimizes a linear combination of the control cost and expected energy usage of the sensor. Assuming that the sensor transmission decisions are event-based and determined using the random estimation error covariance information available to the controller, we show a separation in the design of the transmission scheduler and controller. The optimal controller is given as the solution to an LQG-type problem, while the optimal transmission policy is a threshold policy on the estimation error covariance at the controller.
