Abstract
One of the key challenges in distributed linear estimation
is the systematic fusion of estimates. While the fusion gains
that minimize the mean squared error of the fused estimate for
known correlations have been established, no analogous statement
could be obtained so far for unknown correlations. In this contribution,
we derive the gains that minimize the bound on the true covariance
of the fused estimate and prove that Covariance Intersection (CI)
is the optimal bounding algorithm for two estimates under completely
unknown correlations. When combining three or more variables, the
CI equations are not necessarily optimal, as shown by a counterexample.
