Human Activity Recognition 

Fork on GitHub

Human Activity Recognition (HAR) is a time series classification task identifying the specific movement or action of a person based on sensor data.  Movements can be activities performed indoors, such as walking, standing, sitting or outdoors such as driving, biking. The demo runs on a small form factor board Sensor Tile that comes along with a smartphone application connected through Bluetooth Low Energy. 


– Exploits 3-axis accelerometer data
– 5 classes: stationary, walking, running, biking, driving
– Pre/Post-processing: filtering gravity, reference rotation, temporal filter 

The main model is a ST Convolutional Neural Network model, but several other models are proposed within our function packs FP-AI-SENSING1 and FP-AI-MONITOR1, another CNN and a SVC model.
