Online Guest Detection in a Smart Home Using Pervasive Sensors and Probabilistic Reasoning

A probabilistic approach able to estimate the number of persons in the environment at each time step based on the topology of the sensor network and the sensor activation pattern at this time point is presented.

An Ontology-based Context-aware System for Smart Homes: E-care@home

This paper presents a framework called E-care@home, consisting of an IoT infrastructure, which provides information with an unambiguous, shared meaning across IoT devices, end-users, relatives, health and care professionals and organizations.

A semantic event approach to enrich device-free indoor localization data

This paper investigates the application of stream reasoning technologies to enrich and exploit semantic fusion of events coming from various ambient sensors, including a ceiling-mounted Pyroelectric InfraRed (PIR) sensor array that provides accurate multi-user positioning on a 2D plane.

A Survey on Anomalous Behavior Detection for Elderly Care Using Dense-Sensing Networks

From the study, it is observed that employing sensor fusion techniques could significantly increases the efficiency of dense sensing network and sensor fusion models ensure a high level of robustness and effectiveness compared to the traditional methods.

Attributing Recognised Activities in Multi-Person Households Using Ontology-Based Finite State Machines

The proposed solution consists of modelling the domain terminology into an ontology, as well as that person’s typical habits by means of a Finite State Machine – represented in its own ontology – using the concepts from the domain ontology.
