In situations where disjunct parts of the same process are described by their own first-order Markov models, these models can be joined together under the constraint that there can only be one activity at a time, i.e. the activities of one model coincide with non-activity in the other models. Under certain conditions, nearly all the information to do this is already present in the component models, and the transition probabilities for the joint model can be derived in a purely analytic fashion. This provides a theoretical basis for building scalable and flexible models for sensor data.
