In pattern analysis, dimensionality reduction and reasonable identification rule generation are very important parts. This paper performed effectively the dimensionality reduction by grouping the sensors of which the measured patterns are similar each other, where genetic algorithms were used for combination optimization. To identify the gas type, this paper constructed the hierarchically identifiable rule base with two frames by using rough set theory. The first frame is to accept measurement characteristics of each sensor and the other one is to reflect the identification patterns of each group. Thus, the proposed methods was able to accomplish effectively dimensionality reduction as well as accurate gas identification. In simulation, this paper demonstrated the effectiveness of the proposed methods by identifying five types of gases.
