A stochastic algorithm for solving the sensor selection problem is presented. The problem arises when many sensors are jointly trying to estimate a process but only a subset of them can take measurements at any time step. The proposed stochastic sensor selection strategy is easy to implement and is computationally tractable. The algorithm is illustrated through simple examples of sensor scheduling and dynamic sensor coverage.
