As the connectivity of consumer devices is rapidly growing and cloud computing technologies are becoming more widespread, cloud-aided algorithms for parameter estimation can be developed to exploit the theoretically unlimited storage memory and computational power of the 'cloud', while relying on information provided by multiple sources.

Abstract

As the connectivity of consumer devices is rapidly growing and cloud computing technologies are becoming more widespread, cloud-aided algorithms for parameter estimation can be developed to exploit the theoretically unlimited storage memory and computational power of the 'cloud', while relying on information provided by multiple sources. With the ultimate goal of developing monitoring, diagnostic and prognostic strategies, this paper focuses on the design of a Recursive Least-Squares (RLS) based estimator for identification over a multitude of similar devices (such as a mass production) connected to the cloud. The proposed approach, that relies on Node-to-Cloud-to-Node (N2C2N) transmissions, is designed so that: (i) estimates of the unknown parameters are computed locally and (ii) the local estimates are refined on the cloud by exploiting the additional information that the devices have similar characteristics. The proposed approach requires minimal changes to local (pre-existing) RLS estimators.
