The Microsoft Kinect sensor has brought a new era of Natural User Interface (NUI) based gaming and the associated SDK has provided access to its powerful sensors, which can be utilized in many ways, especially in research purposes. We have already seen its use in robotics, developing assistive technologies, and augmented reality, aside from gaming.(More)
In this paper we have proposed a novel method to detect the defects in woven fabric based on the abrupt changes in the intensity of fabric image due to the defects and have constructed a classification model to properly identify the defects. We have also improved an existing method based on histogram processing for the classifier. In classification model we(More)
— Recently, there has been an increased use of wireless sensor networks and embedded systems in the medical sector. Healthcare providers are now attempting to use these devices to monitor patients in a more accurate and automated way. This would permit healthcare providers to have up-to-date patient information without physical interaction, allowing for(More)
Many elderly who are suffering from dementia are also suffering from agitation. While most assisted living facilities and home health care situations rely upon caregivers to monitor and record agitation of their patients, the accuracy is limited because the caregiver must be present during the agitation and must record the event properly. Accurate 24-7 data(More)
For last few years many research have been taken place to recognize various meaningful patterns from time series data. These researches are based on recognizing basic time series patterns. Most of these works used template based, rule based and neural network based techniques to recognize basic patterns. But in time series there exist many composite(More)
AsthmaGuide is a smartphone and cloud based asthma system in which a smart phone is used as a hub for collecting a comprehensive collection of information. The data, including data over time, is then displayed in a cloud web application for both patients and healthcare providers to view. AsthmaGuide also provides an advice and alarm infrastructure based on(More)
Diaries are used to record aspects of lives --- activities, events, experiences, feelings, thoughts, and physiological measures. Smart diaries can reduce the user's burden by automatically registering some of these aspects. Existing systems have two weaknesses: (a) they are not extensible, and (b) their design is not theory-driven. We introduce LifeMaps, a(More)
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a major public health concern with rising prevalence. In this study we consider 24 predictive parameters and create a machine learning classifier to detect CKD. We evaluate our approach on a dataset of 400 individuals, where 250 of them have CKD. Using our approach we achieve a detection accuracy of 0.993 according to the(More)
