Pedestrian identification by associating wearable and environmental sensors based on phase dependent correlation of human walking

Providing personal and location-dependent services is one of the promising services in public spaces like a shopping mall. So far, sensors in the environment have reliably detected the current positions of humans, but it is difficult to identify people using these sensors. On the other hand, wearable devices can send their personal identity information, but precise position...

Providing relevant information in an ambient services using service requester’s “logical area”

Ambient service is a kind of context-aware services which is related to the surrounding environment of the users. In other words, geographic area around the users is considered as contextual data to provide services. This geographical area around the user is called logical area which would be equivalent for “here” from an ordinary user’s point of view. Most of the time users are...

Cognitive hierarchical active partitions in distributed analysis of medical images

Semantic oriented image analysis has always been considered a challenging task, as it does not concentrate on segmentation process itself, but on interpretation of various image fragments. Contextuality of the process has recently gained significant research interest, with knowledge from image domain being repeatedly highlighted as crucial in achieving satisfactory method...

The adARC pattern analysis architecture for adaptive human activity recognition systems

Most approaches to recognize human activities rely on pattern recognition techniques that are trained once at design time, and then remain unchanged during usage. This reflects the assumption that the mapping between sensor signal patterns and activity classes is known at design-time. This cannot be guaranteed in mobile and pervasive computing, where unpredictable changes can...

An ambient agent architecture exploiting automated cognitive analysis

In this paper an agent-based ambient agent architecture is presented based on monitoring human’s interaction with his or her environment and performing cognitive analysis of the causes of observed or predicted behaviour. Within this agent architecture, a cognitive model for the human is taken as a point of departure. From the cognitive model it is automatically derived how...

Electronic triage system for continuously monitoring casualties at disaster scenes

Unfortunately, many persons are injured or killed during disasters. The problems of paper triage tags, which are widely used at disaster scenes, include an inability to show the current priorities of casualties and a failure to collect the physiological conditions of the casualties. To save lives, this paper proposes an electronic triage system that consists of two types of...

Embedding gesture recognition into airplane seats for in-flight entertainment

In order to reduce both psychological and physical stress in air travel, sensors are integrated into airplane seats to detect gestures as input for in-flight entertainment systems. The content provided by the entertainment systems helps to reduce psychological stress, and gesture recognition is used as input for the content. The use of this system thus also stimulates passengers...

SmartEx: a case study on user profiling and adaptation in exhibition booths

An investigation into user profiling and adaptation with exhibition booth as a case study is reported. First a review of the field of exhibitions and trade fairs and a summary introduction to adaptation and profiling are given. We then introduce three criteria for the evaluation of exhibition booth: effectiveness, efficiency and affect. Effectiveness is related the amount of...

Persuasion in ambient intelligence

Although the field of persuasive technologies has lately attracted a lot of attention, only recently the notion of ambient persuasive technologies was introduced. Ambient persuasive technologies can be integrated into every aspect of life, and as such have greater persuasive power than the traditional box like machines. This article discusses ambient persuasion and poses a model...
