In composite event detection systems such as fire alarms, the two foremost goals are speed and accuracy. One way to achieve these goals is by performing data aggregation at central nodes. This helps reduce energy consumption and redundancy. In this paper we present a new hybrid approach that involves the use of k-means algorithm with neural networks, an efficient supervised learning algorithm that extracts patterns and detects trends that are hidden in complex data. Previous research on event detection concentrates majorly on the use of feed forward neural network and other classifiers such as naive Bayes and decision tree alone for modern fire detection applications. In our approach presented here, we combine k-means with neural networks and other classifiers in order to improve the detection rate of event detection applications. To demonstrate our approach, we perform data aggregation on normalized multi-dimensional fire datasets in order to remove redundant data. The aggregated data forms two clusters which represent the two class labels (actual outputs) with the aid of k-means clustering. The resulting data outputs are trained by the Feed Forward Neural Network, Naive Bayes, and Decision Trees. This approach was found to significantly improve fire detection performance.
