Abstract

A Decentralised Adaptive Clustering (DAC) algorithm for self-monitoring impact sensing networks is presented within the context of CSIRO-NASA Ageless Aero-space Vehicle project. DAC algorithm is contrasted with a Fixed-order Centralised Adaptive Clustering (FCAC) algorithm, developed to evaluate the comparative performance. A number of simulation experiments is described, with a focus on the scalability and convergence rate of the clustering algorithm. Results show that DAC algorithm scales well with increasing network and data sizes and is robust to dynamics of the sensor-data flux.
