English abstract:
Distributed averaging is a fundamental tool for inference in wireless sensor networks; it builds on the ex- change of messages between nodes to achieve consensus. Practical implementations of distributed averaging require a communication protocol that manages the message exchange. We propose a simple asynchronous ALOHA-like protocol that requires no node coordination and applies to any av- eraging scheme that tolerates link failures. We analytically characterize the collisions occurring with this protocol and we provide numerical performance results for asynchronous distributed averaging under the proposed protocol.
