Abstract
RFID tag readers and accelerometers are two sensing technologies that have recently dropped in both size and cost. Assuming that key household items can easily be tagged, one could legitimately imagine a wrist-worn sensor which incorporates both, to infer Activities of Daily Living (ADL). This paper presents initial challenges in research towards this scenario by describing critical choices made in a series of data recording experiments, in which we intend to capture realistic sensor data in a lab setting, using a set of housekeeping activities as targets.
