The interplay between signal processing and wireless networking plays a crucial role in sensor networks deployed for detection and estimation applications. In this paper, an opportunistic power assignment strategy for IR-UWB sensor networks is presented which is designed to optimize detection performance in terms of the global probability of error. The opportunistic power assignment strategy utilizes both the detection error probabilities of individual sensors as well as network topology information, leading to significant performance gains compared to uniform power assignment.
