This paper presents an efficient technique for real-time recognition of human activities by using accelerometer and photoplethysmography (PPG) data. It is based on singular value decomposition (SVD) and truncated Karhunen-Loève transform (KLT) for feature extraction and reduction, and Bayesian classification for class recognition. Due to the nature of signals, and being the algorithm independent from the orientation of the inertial sensor, this technique is particularly suitable for implementation in smartwatches in order to both recognize the exercise being performed and improve the motion artifact (MA) removal from PPG signal for accurate heart rate (HR) estimation. In order to demonstrate the validity of this methodology, it has been successfully applied to a database of accelerometer and PPG data derived from four dynamic activities.

Abstract

This paper presents an efficient technique for real-time recognition of human activities by using accelerometer and photoplethysmography (PPG) data. It is based on singular value decomposition (SVD) and truncated Karhunen-Loève transform (KLT) for feature extraction and reduction, and Bayesian classification for class recognition. Due to the nature of signals, and being the algorithm independent from the orientation of the inertial sensor, this technique is particularly suitable for implementation in smartwatches in order to both recognize the exercise being performed and improve the motion artifact (MA) removal from PPG signal for accurate heart rate (HR) estimation. In order to demonstrate the validity of this methodology, it has been successfully applied to a database of accelerometer and PPG data derived from four dynamic activities.
