Abstract

Physical activity envelope provides invaluable information in numerous pervasive health applications. Physical activity is traditionally gleaned using a range of wearable inertial sensors and/or video technology. This paper introduces a novel opportunistic and non-intrusive monitoring system which can quantify activity levels based on analysis of ambient WiFi signal scatter. A real-time signal processing framework is developed, and the proposed system is implemented in software defined radio platform. Experimental results corroborate the efficacy of the proposed system in long term ADL monitoring in residential healthcare applications.
