Sparsity-based Online Missing Sensor Data Recovery
- 信息技术－会议论文 
In sensor networks, due to power outage at a sensor node, hardware dysfunction, or bad environmental conditions,not all sensor samples can be successfully gathered at the sink. Additionally, in the data stream scenario, some nodes may continually miss samples for a period of time. In this paper, a sparsity-based online data recovery approach is proposed. We construct an overcomplete dictionary composed of past data frames and traditional fixed transform bases. Assuming the current frame can be sparsely represented using only a few elements of the dictionary, missing samples in each frame can be estimated by Basis Pursuit. Our method was tested on data from a real sensor network application:monitoring the temperatures of the disk drive racks at a data center. Simulations show that in terms of estimation accuracy and stability, the proposed approach outperforms existing average-based interpolation methods, and is more robust to burst missing along the time dimension.
