EXTRACTING PERSONAL USER CONTEXT WITH A THREE-AXIS SENSOR MOUNTED ON A FREELY CARRIED CELL PHONE

Toshiki Iso, Kenichi Yamazaki

Abstract

To realize ubiquitous services such as presence services and health care services, we propose an algorithm to extract ”personal user context” such as user’s behavior; it processes information gathered by a three-axis accelerometer mounted on a cell phone. Our algorithm has two main functions; one is to extract feature vectors by analyzing sensor data in detail by wavelet packet decomposition. The other is to flexibly cluster personal user context by combining a self-organizing algorithm with Bayesian theory. A prototype that implements the algorithm is constructed. Experiments on the prototype show that the algorithm can identify personal user contexts such as walking, running, going up/down stairs, and walking fast with an accuracy of about 88[%].
