Human Activity Recognition (HAR) is the process of handling information from sensors and/or video capture devices under certain circumstances to correctly determine human activities. Nowadays, several simple and automatic HAR methods based on sensors and Artificial Intelligence platforms can be easily implemented.

In this challenge, participants are required to determine the nurse care daily activities by utilizing the accelerometer data collected from the smartphone, which is the cheapest and easy-to-implement way in real life.

Nurse Care Activity Recognition

Instructions: 

This dataset consists of two folders: training and testing

The training folder contains data collected in the lab and data from two users collected in the nursing home. They are separated in folders and there is one labels file for each.

 

The testing folder contains data for only the nursing home from the same users as the training folder but different days.

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.
