An Ontology-Based Hybrid Approach to Activity Modeling for Smart Homes
Activity models play a critical role for activity recognition and assistance in ambient assisted living. Existing approaches to activity modeling suffer from a number of problems, e.g., cold-start, model reusability, and ...
A Plantar Inclinometer Based Approach to Fall Detection in Open Environments
In this paper, we report a threshold-based method of fall detection using plantar inclinometer sensor, which provides us the information of angle variations during walking, and of angle status after a fall. The angle ...
