    Abstract

    Activity recognition allows ubiquitous wearable device like smart watch to simplify the study and experiment. It is very convenient and extensibility that we do study with the accelerometer sensor of a smart watch. In this paper, we use Samsung GEAR smart watch to collect data, then extract features, classify with H-SVM (Hierarchical Support Vector Machine) classifier and identify human activities classification. Experiment results show great effect at low sampling rate, such as 10 and 5 Hz, which will give us the energy saving. In most cases, the accuracies of activity recognition experiment are above 99%.
