We develop algorithms for sequential signal encoding from sensor measurements, and for signal estimation via fusion of channel-corrupted versions of these encodings. For signals described by state space models, we present optimized sequential binary-valued encodings constructed via threshold-controlled scalar quantization of a running Kalman filter signal estimate from the sensor measurements. We also develop methods for robust fusion from observations of these encodings corrupted by binary symmetric channels.
