Abstract

One of the key objectives of an ambient assisted
living environment is to enable elderly people to lead a healthy and
independent life. These assisted environments have the capability
to capture and infer activities performed by individuals, which can
be useful for providing assistance and tracking functional decline
among the elderly community. This paper presents an activity
recognition engine based on a hierarchal structure, which allows
modelling, representation and recognition of ADLs, their
associated tasks, objects, relationships and dependencies. The
structure of this contextual information plays a vital role in
conducting accurate ADL recognition. The recognition
performance of the inference engine has been validated with a
series of experiments based on object usage data collected within
the home environment.
