Software Campus: AKTIFUNK

Human activity recognition, i.e. the recognition of a users’ current physical activity (e.g. walking, eating, sleeping) by monitoring and analyzing her/his behavior and the environment, can improve quality of living. However, current sensors for activity recognition have a number of drawbacks such as installation/attachment effort, battery runtime or privacy concerns. In AKTIFUNK, TECO is researching more…

Software Campus: MARC² – Improving Activity Recognition on Mobile Devices Using Crowdsourcing and Cloud Information

In Germany, the majority of people already owns a smartphone or another mobile device – and carries, unconsciously, a well-equipped sensor system with them. Just a few of these sensors are sufficient to draw conclusions about current and future activities or the context of the owner. Even non-physical data sources may provide relevant information for more…
