Abstract

Recently, how to support and care elderly people is serious problem. Modern approach is trying to support to keep health (body and mental) seniors living alone, but it is hard to keep a health by oneself. Our aim is monitoring a user's life for providing suitable services to keep his/her health. To providing suitable service, life log is very useful information. However, traditional monitoring system is only focusing elementary motion, walking, sleeping, and so on. We deal with recognizing advanced motions by using transportation data from an area to other areas in a house. These advanced motion logs support not only elderly but also care stuff or family who plans supports. In daily life, our motion is very variety. Therefore we focused on Basic Activities of Daily Living (ADL) which categories normally doing in daily life such as feeding, bathing, homemaking, and so on. In this research, we pick up 11 motion from ADL for recognition.
