human activity recognition

In an aging population, the demand for nurse workers increases to care for elders. Helping nurse workers make their work more efficient, will help increase elders quality of life, as the nurses can focus their efforts on care activities instead of other activities such as documentation.
Activity Recognition can be used for this goal. If we can recognize what activity a nurse is engaged in, we can partially automate documentation process to reduce time spent on this task, monitor care plan compliance to assure that all care activities have been done for each elder, among others.

    A new dataset named Sanitation is released to evaluate the HAR algorithm’s performance and benefit the researchers in this field, which collects seven types of daily work activity data from sanitation workers.We provide two .csv files, one is the raw dataset “sanitation.csv”, the other is the pre-processed features dataset which is suitable for machine learning based human activity recognition methods.

    This dataset is a highly versatile and precisely annotated large-scale dataset of smartphone sensor data for multimodal locomotion and transportation analytics of mobile users.

    The dataset comprises 7 months of measurements, collected from all sensors of 4 smartphones carried at typical body locations, including the images of a body-worn camera, while 3 participants used 8 different modes of transportation in the southeast of the United Kingdom, including in London.

    Recognition of human activities is one of the most promising research areas in artificial intelligence. This has come along with the technological advancement in sensing technologies as well as the high demand for applications that are mobile, context-aware, and real-time. We have used a smart watch (Apple iWatch) to collect sensory data for 14 ADL activities (Activities of Daily Living).
