The authors present the design of a Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) level event prediction framework to monitor the network and its operational environment to support proactive self actions. For example, by monitoring and subsequently predicting trends on network load or sensor nodes energy levels, the WSN can proactively initiate self-reconfiguration. They propose a Map based Predictive Monitoring (MPM) approach where a selected WSN attribute is first profiled as WSN maps, and based on the maps history, predicts future maps using time series modeling.
