Linguistic summarization of the human activity using skin conductivity and accelerometers

Gracian Trivino, Albert van der Heide

This paper addresses the problem of human activity monitoring including data about the degree of accumulated mental stress. We describe a simple experiment aimed at exploring the possibilities of providing people with linguistic feedback of the temporal evolution of their stress and concentration capability during the working day. We provide details about the utilized sensors and describe how to use fuzzy logic and a finite states machine to create a linguistic model of the evolution of these parameters with the time. Some experimental results are included.
