Activity recognition aims to provide accurate and opportune information on people’s activities by leveraging
sensory data available in today’s sensory rich environments. Nowadays, activity recognition has become an
emerging field in the areas of pervasive and ubiquitous computing. A typical activity recognition technique
processes data streams that evolve from sensing platforms such as mobile sensors, on body sensors, and/or
ambient sensors. This paper surveys the two overlapped areas of research of activity recognition and data
stream mining. The perspective of this paper is to review the adaptation capabilities of activity recognition
techniques in streaming environment. Categories of techniques are identified based on different features
in both data streams and activity recognition. The pros and cons of the algorithms in each category are
analysed and the possible directions of future research are indicated.
