A Survey Investigating the Combination and Number of IMUs on the Human Body Used for Detecting Activities and Human Tracking
MetadataShow full item record
In the present paper we give a classification of the position and the number of inertial measurement units (IMU) used to detect human activities and position tracking based on literature review. It presents a separate view of IMU position and IMU numbers placed on the human body. In total 60 relevant studies were found which focused on human activity recognition (HAR) and tracking with dead-reckoning. The focus lies on the number, the sample frequencies and the positioning of IMUs. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first work which looks particularly at the number and position of IMUs. The result shows that a comparison between the different studies fails, because the description of the positions is not precise enough and not uniform.
