Abstract

One of the main approaches for personalization of
activity recognition is the generation of the classification model from user annotated data on mobile itself. However, giving the resource constraints on such devices there is a need to examine the effects of system parameters such as the feature extraction parameter that can affect the performance of the system. Thus, this paper examines the effects of window length of the sensor data and varying data set sizes on the classification accuracy of
four selected supervised machine learning algorithms running on off the shelf smartphone. Our results show that out of the three window lengths of 32, 64 and 128 considered, the 128 window length yields the best accuracy for all the algorithms tested. Also, the time taken to train the algorithms with samples of this length is minimal compare to 64 and 32 window lengths. A smartphone based activity recognition is implemented to
utilize the results in an online activity recognition scenario.
