Abstract

In this paper, a recording and analysis system is designed and developed for outdoor activity patterns characterization. Some mental problems of aging, especially the occurrence of dementia, are not easily noticed in early stage. In this study, the proposed system is employed for outdoor activity patterns analysis. From the pattern analysis, the abnormal activity which is different from the usual patterns may be differentiated and warned. The proposed system integrates the tablet PC and GPS to track and to detect the occurrence of abnormal condition off-line. In the beginning, the sequence of GPS data is segmented in time frame, and represented in vector form for data reduction. Some filtering technique is also applied for noise reduction.
