Almost one third of our lives is spent sleeping and yet many of us struggle finding consistent high-quality sleep. At the same time, smartphones have become our ubiquitous companions, filled with sensors, processing power, and wireless connectivity. Our proposed sleep timing estimation approach uses smartphone sensor information to estimate daily sleep timing.

In data mining, the relationship between variables is extracted from the association of events in a record. For example,  consider a shopping receipt as a record of acquired items and each item as an event. Therefore, data mining looks for the association of products that are usually purchased toget...

ACTLab Activities The particular focus of ACTLab in SimpleSkin is on activity recognition and behaviour inference and patient state interpretation from textile sensor patches in natural free living conditions. For this purpose, new sensor designs are investigated in our lab and proposed for the demo...

WISEglass aims to realise smart eyewear with the perception, performance, and handling of regular eyeglasses. Our approach is based on the observation that most of our senses, vitals, and action involve the head. Smart eyeglasses with regular look thus offer unique and continuous insight into human ...

Swallowing appears more accessible than chewing since it involves the neck (pharyngeal) region, rather than the head. Our early investigations were focused on EMG and strain sensing collars. EMG sensors at submental and hyoid positions showed sufficient signal quality for detection of swallows due t...

Chewing is a core component of the intake process and micro-structure. Our early work focused on wearable/implant devices worn at/in the ear canal to capture food breakdown sounds conducted from mandible to skull. We found that the sounds are characteristic for certain foods and food types due to th...

The characteristic movement patterns during intake were first discussed in our 2005 paper on detection of eating and drinking gestures. The approach in most follow-up work has been to measure movements using inertial sensors attached to the wrist. Our work focused on developing spotting methods to i...

Nutrition is fundamental to health and paces everyday routines. Dietary monitoring is needed in many healthcare areas, from diabetes and dementia to overweight and obesity.  Our research aims to design effective and practical sensor devices and signal pattern analysis algorithms that explain diet-re...

CDH Activities This work is a collaboration of our previous affiliation at the Univeristy of Passau and the Sports centre of the University of Passau. Innovation Nordic Walking is a complex sport including interactions between upper and lower-body. Nordic Walking provides many health benefits, i.e. ...

ACTLab Activities ACTLab coordinates the EU GreenerBuildings project. In GreenerBuildings, ACTLab is working on algorithms for occupant activity and building context recognition to provide the key information needed to adaptively control energy consumers. Moreover, ACTLab makes efforts to establish ...
