Abstract (english): Distributed nonparametric belief propagation can be employed for cooperative localization. Its natural asset of providing a measure of uncertainty of position estimates makes distributed nonparametric belief propagation a powerful localization technique. However, distributed nonparametric belief propagation requires the exchange of arbitrarily complex messages over communication-constrained links. To cope with these communication constraints, parametric approximations (e.g. Gaussian mixtures) of these messages have evolved to become the de facto standard. These message approximations suffer from a limited representational power for highly nonstandard distributions, which results in limited localization accuracy. We propose two novel particle-based message approximations that select important particles according to mutual information shared with a relevant random variable. The first approach is based on the Information Bottleneck algorithm, while the second scheme is based on partial mutual information. We compare both particle-based methods through simulations, demonstrating an improvement over the parametrized approach in terms of localization error with only moderate increase in communications.
