Accurate and reliable methods for assessing human physical activity (PA) energy expenditure (PAEE) are informative and essential for understanding individual behaviors and quantifying the effect of PA on disease, for PA surveillance, and for examining determinants of PA in different populations. This article reviews recent advances in the estimation of PAEE in three interrelated areas: 1) types of sensors worn by human subjects, 2) features extracted from the measured sensor signals, and 3… CONTINUE READING
