Ambulatory measurement of human activity
“Measure what can be measured, and make measurable what cannot be measured.”—Galileo
Our goal is to automatically recognize human behaviour in real-time. That requieres sometimes to deal with unmeasurable variables. We make them measurable by integrating information gathered from multiple simple sensors attached to the body.
Some unmeasurables we make measurable in real-time (a.k.a. research topics):
- walking step length
- arms and legs articular angles
- spine angle
- intention to change walking direction
- traveling distance and direction (in GPS denied environments)
This research turns out to be a potentially useful tool for our clients.
