Managing Sensor Data on Urban Traffic
Sensor data on traffic events have prompted a wide range of research issues, related with the so-called ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems). Data are delivered for both static (fixed) and mobile (embarked) sensors, generating large and complex spatio-temporal series. Research efforts in handling these data range from pattern matching and data mining techniques (for forecasting and trend analysis) to work on database queries (e.g., to construct scenarios). Work on embarked sensors also considers issues on trajectories and moving objects.
This paper presents a new kind of framework to manage static sensor data. Our work is based on combining research on analytical methods to process sensor data, and database procedures to query these data. The first component is geared towards supporting pattern matching, whereas the second deals with spatio-temporal database issues. This allows distinct granularities and modalities of analysis of sensor data in space and time. This work was conducted within a project that uses real data, with test conducted on 1000 sensors, during 3 years, in a large French city.
