Summary: Abstract-- Pervasive sensing is set to transform the future of
patient care by continuous and intelligent monitoring of patient
well-being. In practice, the detection of patient activity patterns
over different time resolutions can be a complicated procedure,
entailing the utilisation of multi-tier software architectures and
processing of large volumes of data. This paper describes a
scalable, distributed software architecture that is suitable for
managing continuous activity data streams generated from
body sensor networks. A novel pattern mining algorithm is
applied to the pervasive sensing data to obtain a concise,
variable-resolution representation of frequent activity patterns
over time. The identification of such frequent patterns enables
the observation of the inherent structure present in a patient's
daily activity for analyzing routine behaviour and its deviations.
