A bio-inspired distributed detection protocol is proposed where the synchronization of pulsing devices is used to reach a consensus in the decision among sensor nodes. Each node encodes the local decision into their pulsing time and reaches an agreement when the pulsing instants converge to a common value. The protocol has low complexity and scales favorably with the size of the network. In fact, we prove that the probability of detection asymptotically goes to 1 as the number of sensors goes to infinity.
