Marko's Research

I was a PhD Student with the Embedded Sensing Systems group at the Technische Universität Darmstadt and investigated long-term monitoring of activities.

Long-term monitoring for activity recognition gives the possibility to derive characteristics from the data such as daily activity rhythms, certain quality measures for the performed activity or detect abnormalities in the data. Such monitoring is applicable whenever patients have to be observed who are not able to keep log of their activities, e.g., patients from mental institutions that are living in their private home.

The goal of this work is to identify features in long-term data and assess their value in regard to rhythmic, quality and meaning for each activity performed.
