Interpreting sensor data in Internet-of-Things applications is a challenging problem particularly in embedded systems. We consider sensor data analytics where machine learning algorithms can be fully implemented on an embedded processor/sensor board. We develop an efficient real-time realization of a Gaussian mixture model (GMM) for execution on the NXP FRDM-K64F embedded sensor board. We demonstrate the design of a customized program and data structure that generates real-time sensor features, and we show details and training/classification results for select IoT applications. The integrated hardware/software system enables real-time data analytics and continuous training and re-training of the machine learning (ML) algorithm. The real-time ML platform can accommodate several applications with lower sensor data traffic.
