ABSTRACT
Recognizing and recording activities of daily living is a significant problem in elder care. Ubicomp systems targeting ADL recognition have been limited in the number of ADLs they recognize, the detail they recognize, and their robustness. A new paradigm for ADL inferencing focuses on the objects people use during their day. To do this, it leverages three techniques: radio-frequency-identification technology to sense objects being touched, data mining to partially automate model creation, and a probabilistic inference engine. To test the concept, 14 people performed ADLs in a real house containing 108 tagged objects.
