Towards Multi-Classification of Human Motions Using Micro IMU and SVM Training Process
This paper introduces a novel approach for human motion recognition via motion feature vectors collected by A Micro Inertial Measurement Unit (µIMU). First, µIMU that is 56x23x15mm3 in size was built. The unit consists of three dimensional MEMS accelerometers, gyroscopes, a Bluetooth module and a Micro Controller Unit (MCU), which can transmit human motion information through a serial port to a computer. Second, a human motion database was setup by recording the motion data from the µIMU. The motions include fall, walk, stand, run and step upstairs. Third, Support Vector Machine (SVM) training process was used for human motion multi-classification. FFT was used for feature generation and optimal parameter searching process was done for the best SVM kernel function. Experimental results showed that for the given 5 different motions, the total correct recognition rate is 92%, of which the fall motion can be classified from others with 100% recognition rate.
