    Remove faulty measuments.

    Hello everybody,
    -Let's say that have some sensor measuring one quantity (eg. temperature) in an room area. Some typical values might be 21,25,20,19,24.

    -Assume now that one sensor is faulty and starts transmitting faulty values like (-10,100,5,14).

    -Is it possible somehow to recognize these faulty transmissions? If yes how this method called in statistics?

    Best Regards
    Alex

    Data censoring or outlier removal are possibilities, but a bit more detail of the set up would help.
