This paper presents the development and validation of a novel multi-sensory wearable system (Personal Automatic Cigarette Tracker v2 or PACT2.0) for monitoring of cigarette smoking in free-living conditions. The contributions of the PACT2.0 system are: (1) the implementation of a complete sensor suite for monitoring of all major behavioral manifestations of cigarette smoking (lighting events, hand-to-mouth gestures, and smoke inhalations); (2) a miniaturization of the sensor hardware to enable… 
Cigarette Smoking Detection with an Inertial Sensor and a Smart Lighter
TLDR
The proposed method identified smoking events from the cigarette lighter data and estimated puff counts by detecting hand-to-mouth gestures in the IMU data by a Support Vector Machine (SVM) classifier and suggests that an IMU and instrumented lighter may potentially be used in studies of smoking behavior under natural conditions.
Wearable Sensors for Monitoring of Cigarette Smoking in Free-Living: A Systematic Review
TLDR
A systematic review of current and forthcoming wearable technologies, with a focus on sensing elements, body placement, detection accuracy, underlying algorithms and applications, suggested that no system reached 100% accuracy in the detection or evaluation of smoking-related features.
PACT CAM: Wearable Sensor System to Capture the Details of Cigarette Smoking in Free-Living
TLDR
The smoking context, as captured objectively by PACT CAM for multiple days, is critical to infer the overall smoking behavior of a person and select proper cessation intervention methods.
Objective Detection of Cigarette Smoking from Physiological Sensor Signals
TLDR
Results validate the proof-of-concept that, although further research is necessary for performance improvement, characteristic changes in heart rate parameters could be a useful indicator of cigarette smoking even under free-living conditions.
Development of a Smart IoT Charger for Wearable Cigarette Smoking Monitor
TLDR
A smart IoT charger based on a Raspberry Pi (RPi) is presented in this paper, which can serve to recharge the sensor battery, update the sensor timestamp, and extract data from the sensor system and instant upload of sensor data to a cloud server to store and process sensor signals.
Ambulatory Smoking Habits Investigation based on Physiology and Context (ASSIST) using wearable sensors and mobile phones: protocol for an observational study
TLDR
The primary objective of the study is to reveal the contextual and physiological pattern of different smoking behaviours using wearable sensors and mobile phones, and to characterise the types of smokers and triggering events.
Wearable Egocentric Camera as a Monitoring Tool of Free-living Cigarette Smoking: A Feasibility Study.
TLDR
A wearable camera-based sensor may facilitate objective monitoring of cigarette smoking, categorization of smoking environments, and identification of behavioral metrics of smoking in free-living conditions.
Cigarette Smoke Exposure Computation using Bioimpedance Sensor
TLDR
This paper is the first to assess the suitability of a bio-impedance sensor for measurement of the smoke exposure metrics from breathing, and indicates the potential use of bio-impacted sensor for Measurement of Smoke exposure metrics.
Electromyogram in Cigarette Smoking Activity Recognition
TLDR
SEMG improved smoking detection results when combined with IMU signals without using an additional device, and showed that using only sEMG signals would not provide superior cigarette smoking detection performance relative to IMU signal.

A wearable sensor system for monitoring cigarette smoking.
TLDR
It is suggested that smoking manifests unique breathing patterns that are highly correlated with hand-to-mouth cigarette gestures and suggest that these signals can potentially be used to identify and characterize individual smoke inhalations.
RF hand gesture sensor for monitoring of cigarette smoking
TLDR
Design and validation of a wearable radio-frequency proximity sensor that measures the distance between an individual's wrist and chest in real-time and provides quantitative data that can be used for analysis of behavioral patterns during smoking and other activities are detailed.
Understanding smoking behavior using wearable sensors: Relative importance of various sensor modalities
TLDR
Analysis of subjects' anthropometric characteristics on the impact of sensor signals and the contribution of each sensor modality to the accuracy of the classifier for smoke inhalations detection indicated that subjects with medium BMI, high BMI, and in a standing position were more likely to affect the quality of the breathing signal.
Monitoring of Cigarette Smoking Using Wearable Sensors and Support Vector Machines
TLDR
The feasibility of monitoring cigarette smoking by means of a wearable and noninvasive sensor system in free living conditions is suggested by demonstrating feasibility of automatic recognition of smoke inhalations from signals arising from continuous monitoring of breathing and hand-to-mouth gestures by support vector machine classifiers.
