In this paper, the idea of a modular activity monitoring system is introduced. By using different combinations of the system's three modules, different functionality becomes available: 1) a coarse intensity estimation of physical activities 2) different features based on HR-data and 3) the recognition of basic activities and postures. 3D-accelerometers — placed on lower arm, chest and foot — and a heart rate monitor were used as sensors. A dataset with 8 subjects and 14 different activities was… CONTINUE READING
