This paper presents a neuro-fuzzy classifer for activity recognition using one triaxial accelerometer and feature reduction approaches. We use a triaxial accelerometer to acquire subjects' acceleration data and train the neurofuzzy classifier to distinguish different activities/movements. To construct the neuro-fuzzy classifier, a modified mapping-constrained agglomerative clustering algorithm is devised to reveal a compact data configuration from the acceleration data. In addition, we investigate two different feature reduction methods, a feature subset selection and linear discriminate analysis. These two methods are used to determine the significant feature subsets and retain the characteristics of the data distribution in the feature space for training the neuro-fuzzy classifier. Experimental results have successfully validated the effectiveness of the proposed classifier.
