Abstract
In this paper, we investigate in how far nonlinear dimensionality reduction (DR) techniques can be utilized to tackle particular challenges of sensor data from smart home environments. Smart homes often contain a large number of sensors of various types, providing output in real time, which results in a sequence of high-dimensional, heterogeneous data vectors. We propose that DR techniques can provide a truthful low-dimensional representation (i.e. a compression) of this kind of data, together with a corresponding reconstruction (i.e. decompression). This yields an automatic fusion of uncoordinated raw sensor signals, as well as an economical storage format, with a certain robustness against sensor failure. In proof-of-concept experiments, we present first empirical results to test our approach based on real-world data.
