Smart Homes are currently one of the hottest topics in the area of Internet of Things or Augmented Living. In order to provide high-level intelligent solutions, algorithms for identifying which activities the inhabitants intend to perform are necessary. Sensor data plays here an essential role, for testing, for learning underlying rules, for classifying and connecting sensor patterns and to inhabitant activities, etc. However, only few and limited data sets are currently available. We present…

Towards a Simulation Framework for Smart Indoor Spaces

This work reports on a simulation-based methodology that supports the modeling of indoor spaces, the activities of their occupants, and the behaviors of different types of sensors, and indicates that SIMsis produces realistic agent traces and sensor readings, and has the potential to support the process of developing and deploying sensor-based applications.

Automatic Daily Activity Schedule Planning for Simulating Smart House with Elderly People Living Alone

An activity schedule generator to mimic the daily life of elderly people living alone is proposed, which outperforms existing methods of activity schedule planning in three aspects and is adaptive to the layout of a simulated smart house.

Open-Source Data Collection and Data Sets for Activity Recognition in Smart Homes

Automatic detection and recognition of Activities of Daily Living (ADL) are crucial for providing effective care to frail older adults living alone. A step forward in addressing this challenge is t

The DigForSim Agent Based Simulator of People Movements in Crime Scenes

The lack of real data about movements of people in crime scenes emerged as a major limitation to the need of testing the DigForASP prototypes that exploit Artificial Intelligence and Automated Reasoning for evidence analysis.

Modelling Commuting Activities for the Simulation of Demand Responsive Transport in Rural Areas

For the provision of efficient and high-quality public transport services in rural areas with a low population density, the introduction of Demand Responsive Transport (DRT) services is reasonable.



Simulation of Smart Home Activity Datasets

This paper provides a review of existing approaches for the generation of simulated smart home activity datasets, including model-based approaches and interactive approaches which implement virtual sensors, environments and avatars.

Simulation of a smart home environment

The WSN simulator provides the ability to simulate the resident's movement through the residential environment, as defined by the 2D model, and monitor how ambient sensors respond in a binary (on/off) manner to the residents' movement.

Smart home simulation using avatar control and probabilistic sampling

Results suggest that the proposed approach increase realism of simulated data, however results also indicate that improvements could be achieved using the geometric distribution as a model for the number of PIR events during a time interval.
