Abstract: Smart phones have become an integral part of everyday human life. These phones are packed with various sensors for different purposes. Most of them are used for understanding the environment in which the user uses the phone so that the device could respond rapidly. Indirectly the phone extracts context information of the users like the activity performed using accelerometer and gyroscope sensors. This information can be used for a variety of applications like home automation, smart environment, etc to perform automatic changes to the environment without direct input from the user. This paper deals with the classification of activities of daily living like walking, jogging, sitting, standing, upstairs and downstairs using the data collected from accelerometer sensor within the smart phone. A comparative analysis has been performed on different machine learning techniques for activity classification.
Keywords: Activities of Daily Living Classification, Smart Phone, Sensors, Accelerometer, Multilayer Perceptron, Support Vector Machine and Decision Tree.
