iWOAR 2016, 3rd international Workshop on Sensor-based Activity Recognition and Interaction. Proceedings
June 23 - 24, 2016, Fraunhofer IGD, Univerity of Rostock
Wearable sensors potentially enable for a better and unobtrusive recognition of human activity and the state of rest, sleep, stress and drive the ongoing trend of the quantified self-movement. As an enabling technology, powerful, while yet inexpensive MEMS-Chips (micro-electro-mechanical system) push the penetration of a broad variety of mobile devices. Thereby, these devices gain high interest, not only in terms of general customer products, but also as integrated systems in an industrial context, either way to enable continuous monitoring of complex life processes and workplace situations. Another challenge that research is facing concerns the limited human abilities of interaction in context of mobility and in situations, in which high attention is being demanded. New and alternative ways are needed to be found in order to take advantage of all human capabilities to enable safe and unobtrusive interaction.
