USMART: An Unsupervised Semantic Mining Activity Recognition Technique
Juan Ye, Graeme Stevenson, Simon Dobson
Article No.: 16
Recognising high-level human activities from low-level sensor data is a crucial driver for pervasive systems that wish to provide seamless and distraction-free support for users engaged in normal activities. Research in this area has grown...
Automatic Detection of Social Behavior of Museum Visitor Pairs
Eyal Dim, Tsvi Kuflik
Article No.: 17
In many cases, visitors come to a museum in small groups. In such cases, the visitors’ social context has an impact on their museum visit experience. Knowing the social context may allow a system to provide socially aware services to the...
Adaptive Gesture Recognition with Variation Estimation for Interactive Systems
Baptiste Caramiaux, Nicola Montecchio, Atau Tanaka, Frédéric Bevilacqua
Article No.: 18
This article presents a gesture recognition/adaptation system for human--computer interaction applications that goes beyond activity classification and that, as a complement to gesture labeling, characterizes the movement execution. We describe a...
Affectionate Interaction with a Small Humanoid Robot Capable of Recognizing Social Touch Behavior
Martin Cooney, Shuichi Nishio, Hiroshi Ishiguro
Article No.: 19
Activity recognition, involving a capability to recognize people's behavior and its underlying significance, will play a crucial role in facilitating the integration of interactive robotic artifacts into everyday human environments. In particular,...
Incremental Learning of Daily Routines as Workflows in a Smart Home Environment
Berardina De Carolis, Stefano Ferilli, Domenico Redavid
Article No.: 20
Smart home environments should proactively support users in their activities, anticipating their needs according to their preferences. Understanding what the user is doing in the environment is important for adapting the environment's behavior, as...
Section: Special Issue on Activity Recognition for Interaction
We propose in this article a new approach to robot cognitive control based on a stimulus-response framework that models both a robot’s stimuli and the robot’s decision to switch tasks in response to or inhibit the stimuli. In an...
