Understandings of human activity through wearable sensors will enable the next-generation human-oriented computing. However, most of researches on the activity recognition so far are based on small number of test subjects, and not well adapted for real world applications. To overcome the situation, we have started a project named "HASC Challenge" to collect(More)
In wearable computing environments, a wearable computer runs various applications using various sensors (wearable sensors). In the area of context awareness, though various systems using accelerometers have been proposed to recognize very minute motions and states, energy consumption was not taken into consideration. We propose a context-aware system that(More)
In indoor positioning using Wi-Fi, there is a problem that the accuracy is not stable by the occurrence of large errors. Large errors tend to occur when density of wireless LAN access points is low or the radio wave condition is unstable. Furthermore, as for positioning utilising smartphone, it takes a while to scan Wi-Fi beacons. Thereby, errors tend to(More)
In this paper, we propose a data forwarding method for efficient data gathering in wireless sensor networks with multiple mobile sinks which freely move in the target region. In our proposed method, each sensor node forwards data packets based on information on connectivity (the status of connection with mobile sinks). As the way to share information on(More)
In the wearable computing environment, a computer provides many kinds of services by using the values from wearable sensors to recognize the user's movements or situations. In the research on activity recognition, accelerometers are attached on the user's body such as wrists, waist and, feet. Though researches on best sensor placement for context aware(More)
An accelerometer is installed in most current mobile phones, such as iPhones, Android-powered devices, and video game controllers for the Wii or PS3, which enables easy and intuitive operations. Therefore, many gesture-based user interfaces that use accelerometers are expected to appear in the future. Gesture recognition systems with an accelerometer(More)
The authors have been developing the system, which analyzes pedestrian flow using Wi-Fi packet sensors. The sensors collect Wi-Fi packet called probe request packet, which is transmitted from a smartphone to search Wi-Fi access points. In addition, the cloud storage server is running to manage observed packets centrally and to compute pedestrian flow in(More)
Human activity recognition through the wearable sensor will enable a next-generation human-oriented ubiquitous computing. However, most of research on human activity recognition so far is based on small number of subjects, and non-public data. To overcome the situation, we have gathered 4897 accelerometer data with 116 subjects and compose them as(More)
We discuss in this paper the problem of simultaneous tracking, which exploits the synergy between location and movement to provide the information necessary for intelligent home appliance control. Our goal is to carry out accurate movement estimation for multiple people in a home environment. We propose an approach that uses information gathered using only(More)
