Paper Abstract

A new approach for data analysis and classification for datasets obtained by a multiparameter optical turbidity sensor is proposed. This approach is based on the combination of statistical or machine learning methods such as linear regressions and clustering analysis. A case study is presented using a 6 dimensional fiber optic sensor to simultaneously classify types of sediments and concentration. Results show a 79% of success for the used training data sets. The methodology proposed is flexible because can be easily adapted to other physical scenarios.
