Continuously Mining Sliding Window Trend Clusters in a Sensor Network
The trend cluster discovery retrieves areas of spatially close sensors which measure a numeric random field having a prominent data trend along a time horizon. We propose a computation preserving algorithm which employees an incremental learning strategy to continuously maintain sliding window trend clusters across a sensor network. Our proposal reduces the amount of data to be processed and saves the computation time as a consequence. An empirical study proves the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm to take under control computation cost of detecting sliding window trend clusters.
