Human Activity Recognition Using Smartphone and Smartwatch

Hamid M. Ali, Ali M. Muslim, , ,
Computer Engineering Dept., Baghdad University, Iraq

Human activity recognition is influential subject in different fields of human daily life especially in the mobile health. As the smartphone becomes an integrated part of human daily life which has the ability of complex computation, internet connection and also contains a large number of hardware sensors, encourage implementation of the human activity recognition system. Most of the works done in this field imposed the restriction of firmly fixing the smartphone in a certain position on the human body, together with machine learning mechanism, to facilitate the process of classifying human activities from the smartphone sensors raw data. To overcome this restriction, the proposed approach incorporated a smartwatch, fixed on the human ankle, together with smartphone freely carried by the user. The use of smartwatch assisted in providing distinct separable signal variation from the smartwatch accelerometer and gyroscope sensors raw data which in turn facilitated the use of a threshold-based mechanism to classify 20 various human activities. Furthermore, this work provides a service for remotely real-time monitoring of the user human activities. The system is tested with different subjects and achieved an accuracy of 97.5%.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
