1. A system for data collection in an industrial environment, the system comprising:an industrial system comprising a plurality of components, and a plurality of sensors each operatively coupled to at least one of the plurality of components;
a sensor communication circuit structured to interpret a plurality of sensor data values in response to a sensed parameter group;
a pattern recognition circuit structured to determine a recognized pattern value in response to at least a portion of the plurality of sensor data values, wherein the recognized pattern value includes a secondary value comprising a value determined in response to the at least a portion of the plurality of sensor data values;
a sensor learning circuit structured to update the sensed parameter group in response to the recognized pattern value, wherein the sensor communication circuit is further structured to adjust the interpreting the plurality of sensor data values in response to the updated sensed parameter group; and
wherein the pattern recognition circuit is further structured to iteratively perform the determining the recognized pattern value and the sensor learning circuit is configured to iteratively update the sensed parameter group to improve a sensing performance value, wherein the sensing performance value comprises a signal-to-noise performance for detecting a value of interest in the industrial system.
