Research Project

Activity Recognition Using Ambient and Wearable Sensors

We collect data from ambient and wearable sensors to build a system for granular and autonomous patient monitoring in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Most present day research approach the patient activity monitoring using RGB cameras, but this method records the patients’ faces and raises many privacy concerns. Instead, we use depth cameras, which obscure facial features, and electromyography (EMG) sensors to autonomously detect patient activity and preserve patient privacy.
