Real-time activity recognition using body sensor
networks is an important and challenging task and it has
many potential applications. In this paper, we propose a realtime,
hierarchical model to recognize both simple gestures and
complex activities using a wireless body sensor network. In
this model, we first use a fast, lightweight template matching
algorithm to detect gestures at the sensor node level, and
then use a discriminative pattern based real-time algorithm
to recognize high-level activities at the portable device level.
We evaluate our algorithms over a real-world dataset. The
results show that the proposed system not only achieves good
performance (an average precision of 94.9%, an average recall
of 82.5%, and an average real-time delay of 5.7 seconds), but
also significantly reduces the network communication cost by
