Correlating sensors and activities in an intelligent environment: A logistic regression approach

Research output: Contribution in Book/Report/Proceedings - With ISBN/ISSNConference contribution/Paperpeer-review



An important problem in intelligent environments is how the system can identify and model users' activities. This paper describes a new technique for identifying correlations between sensors and activities in an intelligent environment. Intelligent systems can then use these correlations to recognize the activities in a space. The proposed approach is motivated by the need for distinguishing the critical set of sensors that identifies a specific activity from others that do not. We compare several correlation techniques and show that logistic regression is a suitable solution. Finally, we describe our approach and report preliminary results.
