Automatic monitoring of daily living activities can greatly improve the possibility of living autonomously for frail individuals. Pose recognition based on skeleton tracking data is promising for identifying dangerous situations and trigger external intervention or other alarms, while avoiding privacy issues and the need for patient compliance. Here we present the benefits of pre-processing Kinect-recorded skeleton data to limit the several errors produced by the system when the subject is not in ideal tracking conditions. The accuracy of our two hidden layers MLP classifier improved from about 82% to over 92% in recognizing actors in four different poses: standing, sitting, lying and dangerous sitting.

Abstract

Automatic monitoring of daily living activities can greatly improve the possibility of living autonomously for frail individuals. Pose recognition based on skeleton tracking data is promising for identifying dangerous situations and trigger external intervention or other alarms, while avoiding privacy issues and the need for patient compliance. Here we present the benefits of pre-processing Kinect-recorded skeleton data to limit the several errors produced by the system when the subject is not in ideal tracking conditions. The accuracy of our two hidden layers MLP classifier improved from about 82% to over 92% in recognizing actors in four different poses: standing, sitting, lying and dangerous sitting.
