Advances in technology have led to the development of various light-weight sensory devices that can be woven into the physical environment of our daily lives. Such systems enable on-body and mobile health-care monitoring. Our interest particularly lies in the area of movement monitoring platforms that operate with inertial sensors. In this paper, we propose a power optimization technique that will consider the sensing coverage problem from a collaborative signal processing perspective. We introduce compatibility graphs and describe how they can be utilized for power optimization. The problem we outline can be transformed into an NP-hard problem. Therefore, we propose an ILP formulation to attain a lower bound on the solution and a fast greedy technique. Along side this, we introduce a system for dynamically activating and deactivating sensor nodes in real-time. Finally, we elucidate the effectiveness of our techniques on data collected from several subjects.
