Factored state-abstract hidden Markov models for activity recognition using pervasive multi-modal sensors
MetadataShow full item record
Current probabilistic models for activity recognition do not incorporate much sensory input data due to the problem of state space explosion. In this paper, we propose a model for activity recognition, called the Factored State-Abtract Hidden Markov Model (FS-AHMM) to allow us to integrate many sensors for improving recognition performance. The proposed FS-AHMM is an extension of the Abstract Hidden Markov Model which applies the concept of factored state representations to compactly represent the state transitions. The parameters of the FS-AHMM are estimated using the EM algorithm from the data acquired through multiple multi-modal sensors and cameras. The model is evaluated and compared with other existing models on real-world data. The results show that the proposed model outperforms other models and that the integrated sensor information helps in recognizing activity more accurately.
