dc.description.abstractWorld’s population is ageing rapidly. There have been various efforts to improve the quality of life for elderly. Ambient assisted living is one possible solution which enables elderly or disabled people to live a better lifestyle. Currently there are smart home systems that utilize a wide range of sensors to predict our everyday activities. However, research into activity recognition and resident identification using ultrasonic sensors are limited. This work introduces machine learning techniques with ultrasonic sensors to predict the activities of one and two person in the smart home environment. The proposed system is capable of recognising the activities and identifying the residents without the need to manually label the prior activities. Our evaluation demonstartes that the proposed approach can predict resident’s activities with high accuracy. The trained model could be used to predict other resident’s activities and also identify resident’s from each other. This research enables the smart home system to be widely adopted in people’s houses with minimal training and also enable people who need support, to live independently with less interference from caregivers which in turn enables caregivers to manage more people at the same time.en_NZ
