AbstractThis paper describes a real-time implementation of the pattern recognition technology originally developed by BBN [Delatizky et al] for post-processing of time-sampled telemetry data. This makes it possible to monitor a data stream for a characteristic shape, such as an arrhythmic heartbeat or a step-response whose overshoot is unacceptably large. Once programmed to recognize patterns of interest, it generates a symbolic description of a time-series signal in intuitive, object-oriented terms. The basic technique is to decompose the signal into a hierarchy of simpler components using rules of grammar, analogous to the process of decomposing a sentence into phrases and words. This paper describes the basic technique used for pattern recognition of time-series signals and the problems that must be solved to apply the techniques in real time. We present experimental results for an unoptimized prototype demonstrating that 4000 samples per second can be handled easily on conventional hardware.
