Abstract

These days, smart home applications such as a concierge service for residents, home appliance control and so on are attracting attention. In order to realize these applications, we strongly believe that we need a system which recognizes the various human activities accurately with a low cost device. There are many studies which work on the activity recognition in the smarthome. Moreover, we also have proposed the activity recognition technique in the smarthome by utilizing the digital-output-PIR sensor, door sensor, watt meter. However, the study has the challenge: we cannot distinguish between the similar tiny activities at the same place: 'eating' and 'reading' with sitting on a sofa. In order to cope with this challenge, we introduce ALPAS: analog-output-PIR-sensor-based activity recognition technique which recognizes the detailed activities of the user. Our technique recognizes the activity of the user by utilizing the machine learning. We evaluated the proposed technique in a smarthome which belongs to the authors' university. In the evaluation, three subjects performed four different activities with sitting on a sofa. As a result, we achieved F-Measure: 57.0%.
