Fully Distributed Resilient State Estimation Based on Distributed Median Solver
In this paper, we present a scheme of fully distributed resilient state estimation for linear dynamical systems under sensor attacks. The proposed state observer consists of a network of local observers, where each of them utilizes local measurements and information transmitted from the neighbors. As a fully distributed scheme, it does not necessarily collect a majority of sensing data for the sake of attack identification, while the compromised sensors are eventually identified by the distributed network and excluded from the observers. For this, the overall network (not the individual local observer) is assumed to have redundant sensors and assumed to be connected. The proposed scheme is based on a novel design of a distributed median solver, which approximately recovers the median value of local estimates.
