Human Activity Recognition based on Smartwatch and Smart Wristband Sensors
Presentation on Human Activity Recognition based on Smartwatch and Smart Wristband Sensors — Jessica Sena e William Robson Schwartz.
The use of sensors from portable devices to recognize human activities grows every year and the Smart Sense Laboratory has already made great advances in research on this area.
There are many reasons for this growth: the interest of various areas, such as medical, military, and security applications; the convenience and comfort of using such devices; the feeling of privacy (as opposed to monitoring with cameras where depending on the activity performed or the location, the user feels uncomfortable); and these devices are already naturally inserted into people’s lives, facilitating the data capture.
The number of sensors in these devices is growing and the large range of sensors provides rich and complementary information regarding the activities performed by users.
Therefore, an important line of research that has garnered attention focuses on combining these multiple sensors to improve human activity recognition.
