  • Context awareness is one mechanism that allows wearable computers to provide information proactively, unobtrusively and with minimal user disturbance. Gestures and activities are an important aspect of the user's context. Detection and classification of gestures may be computationally expensive for low-power, miniaturized wearable platforms, such as those that may be integrated into garments. In this paper we introduce a novel method for online and real-time spotting and classification of… CONTINUE READING
