'Massive time series analysis in the InfraWatch project'
The InfraWatch project revolves around data from a sensor network placedon a Dutch highway bridge, and the analysis of this data, in order tounderstand degradation of the bridge over time. This so-called StructuralHealth Monitoring requires one to analyse large quantities of data, andmodel the different ways in which a bridge responds to changes in trafficand climate. In this talk I will discuss the various ways in which weanalyse the data for significant patterns, and how this analysis mightlead to indicators of bridge health. Specifically, I will cover thechallenges of having several Terabytes of sensor data to analyse.
