Abstract

In this paper, an algorithm for activity recognition is proposed using inertial sensors worn on the ankle. This innovative approach based on geometric patterns uses a stride detector that can detect both normal walking strides and atypical strides such as small steps, side steps and backward walking that existing methods struggle to detect. It is also robust in critical situations, when for example the wearer is sitting and moving the ankle, while most algorithms in the literature would wrongly detect strides. A technique inspired by Zero Velocity Update is used on the stride detection to compute the trajectory of the device. It allows to compute relevant features for the activity recognition learning task. Compared to most algorithms in the literature, this method does not use fixed-size sliding window that could be too short to provide enough information or too long and leads to overlapping issue when the window covers two different activities.
