In our previous work, we developed efficient field reconstruction methods in wireless sensor networks. In this paper, we use an amplify-and-forward to transmit the sensor measurements to the fusion center and we derive the mean square error (MSE) of the reconstructed field as a function of the measurement and receive SNR and of the sensor positions. We propose to allocate the sen- sor node transmit powers such that the sum power is minimized subject to an MSE target and we phrase this approach as a convex optimization problem that can be numerically solved in an efficient manner. For the case of critical sampling we derive a closed-form expression for the optimal power allocation. We illustrate the power savings achieved with the proposed power allocation schemes both for Gaussian and Rayleigh fading channels.
