In this paper we consider the impact of communication noise on distributed sensing and estimation in mobile networks. We characterize when a node should rely on getting information from others and when it should rely on self exploration. In doing so, we explore the trade‐offs between sensing and communication by finding the optimum network configuration under communication constraints. We also show how to achieve the optimum configuration in a distributed manner. While our main results are presented in one dimension (1D), we provide insight into the two dimension (2D) setup and extend a number of key results to 2D.
