Abstract

In this paper, we propose a two-layered classification approach to effectively recognize the physical activities while the smartphone is placed at any four common positions on the body. Then we implement a Life Record app on smartphone that automatically classifies physical activities and records them as the personal life logs. For assisting users in comprehending their daily activities, the system also provides the visualization interface that shows the brief descriptions of their life logs. We demonstrate that the system possesses less limitation to monitor daily activities that the users are not restricted to carry their smartphones in specific positions. Another major benefit of our system is to provide a complete overview of personal activities, which enhances the self-awareness of physical activity in our daily life through an intuitive visualization interface. Furthermore, analysis of life logs can also be applied in specific services or recommendation applications in the future.
