Wearable Sensor Data Classification for Human Activity Recognition (HAR)
Key Personnel: Kandethody Ramachandran, Yicheng Tu, Ming Ji

Sensor based human activity recognition has applications in areas such as healthcare monitoring, sports, physical fitness, etc. Major purpose of such efforts is to achieve noninvasive and mobile activity monitoring. Using ubiquitous, cheap and widely available technology is the key requirement for human activity recognition.  One of the projects we are looking at involves creation of a platform to combine off-the-shelf sensors of smartphones and smartwatches for recognizing human activities. We will develop novel computational algorithms so as to identify the activities in real time. In order to achieve the best tradeoff between the system’s computational complexity and recognition accuracy,  we will develop multiplel evaluations criteria to determine which classification algorithm and features to be used.
