Self-Care Assessment for Daily Living Using Machine Learning Mechanism
Nowadays, activities of daily living (ADL) recognition system has been considered an important field of computer vision.Wearable and optical sensors are widely used to assess the daily living activities in healthy people and people with certain disorders. Although conventional ADL utilizes RGB optical sensors but an RGB-D camera with features of identifying depth (distance information) and visual cues has greatly enhanced the performance of activity recognition. In this paper, an RGB-D-based ADL recognition system has been presented. Initially, human silhouette has been extracted from the noisy background of RGB and depth images to track human movement in a scene. Based on these silhouettes, full body features and point based features have been extracted which are further optimized with probability based incremental learning (PBIL) algorithm. Finally, random forest classifier has been used to classify activities into different categories. The n-fold crossvalidation scheme has been used to measure the viability of the proposed model on the RGBD-AC benchmark dataset and has achieved an accuracy of 92.71% over other state-of-the-art methodologies.
