We propose a distributed method for computing the joint (all-sensors) likelihood function (JLF) in a wireless sensor network. A consensus algorithm is used for a decentralized, iterative calculation of a sufficient statistic that describes an approximation to the JLF. After convergence of the consensus algorithm, the approximate JLF-which epitomizes the measurements of all sensors-is available at each sensor. This "likelihood consensus" method requires only communications between neighboring sensors. We implement the likelihood consensus method in a distributed particle filtering scheme. Each sensor runs a local particle filter that computes a global state estimate. The updating of the particle weights of each local particle filter uses the JLF. The performance of this distributed particle filter is demonstrated on a target tracking problem.
