Sensitivity Optimization for Electromagnetic Measurement Systems by Sensor Selection
Paper in proceedings, 2013

We attempt to maximize the sensitivity of a sensor system, where the system sensitivity is expressed by a goal function formulated in terms of the Fisher information matrix. Given a large set of sensor candidates, we formulate the problem as a sensor selection problem by means of introducing a weight for each sensor candidate. Such a weight corresponds to the fraction of measurements that is performed by a specific sensor and it is allowed to vary continuously, which yields a convex optimization problem.
