Recognition of Human Motion Related Activities from Sensors

Vera Nadales, Maria Josefa (2010) Recognition of Human Motion Related Activities from Sensors. Master's, University of Malaga.



This work presents the design and evaluation of an activity recognition system for seven important motion related activities. The only sensor used is an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) worn on the belt. For classification Bayesian techniques, based on relevant features of the IMU raw data which are calculated in real time are applied. Based on a complete labelled data set, i.e. supervised by an observing human judge, a K2 learning algorithm by Cooper and Herskovits was used to construct the Bayesian Network (BN) of the features and compared to a Naive Bayes approach. The comparison of dynamic and static inference algorithms, based on the evaluation of the labelled data sets recorded from 16 male and female subjects show that a Hidden Markov Model (HMM) based on a learnt BN provides the best results.
