Unsupervised Learning In Body-Area Networks

Nicola Bicocchi, Matteo Lasagni, Marco Mamei, Andrea Prati, Rita Cucchiara, Franco Zambonelli


Pattern recognition is becoming a key application in body-area networks. This paper presents a framework promoting unsupervised training for multi-modal, multi-sensor classification systems. Specifically, it enables sensors provided with pattern-recognition capabilities to autonomously supervise the learning process of other sensors. The approach is discussed using a case study combining a smart camera and a body-worn accelerometer. The body-worn accelerometer sensor is trained to recognize four user activities pairing accelerometer data with labels coming from the camera. Experimental results illustrate the applicability of the approach in different conditions. © 2010 ACM.
