In this paper we use the accelerometer of a smart phone to design and implement a fall monitor with GPS function for the user. We not only analyze the change of acceleration but also analyze the six typical actions of humans. These are going upstairs, going downstairs, standing up, sitting down, running and jumping. Then we compare the six actions with the(More)
In this paper we use a smart phone with three-axis accelerometer features together with a multiple judgment method to improve the accuracy of measuring both walking and running steps. In the past, using only a single characteristic for ascertaining whether there is a walking step resulted in large errors while on the other hand the multiple characteristics(More)

Whilst naturally ventilated buildings are currently considered to be the ideal solution to low energy design there remain a large proportion of buildings for which air conditioning offers the only practical solution. The project presented in this paper is intended to provide a means to assess design options for such buildings at a very early stage in the(More)
