iWOAR 2018

5th international Workshop on Sensor-based Activity Recognition and Interaction

Wearable sensors potentially enable for a better and unobtrusive recognition of human activity and the state of rest, sleep, stress and drive the ongoing trend of the quantified self-movement. As an enabling technology, powerful, while yet inexpensive MEMS-Chips (micro-electro-mechanical system) push the penetration of a broad variety of mobile devices. Thereby, these devices gain high interest, not only in terms of general customer products, but also as integrated systems in an industrial context, either way to enable continuous monitoring of complex life processes and workplace situations.
Another challenge that research is facing concerns the limited human abilities of interaction in context of mobility and in situations, in which high attention is being demanded. New and alternative ways are needed to be found in order to take advantage of all human capabilities to enable safe and unobtrusive interaction.

This conference-like workshop is initiated and organized by the Fraunhofer IGD and the University of Rostock. It offers scientists, interested parties, and users in the area of sensor-based activity recognition and interaction the possibility to an exchange of experiences and a presentation of best-practice examples, as well as technical and scientific results. The workshop focuses on technologies for human activity recognition and interaction via inertial sensors (accelerometers, gyroscopes etc.) and their scientific applications.

iWOAR 2018 aims to foster the relationship between academia and industry. We strongly encourage industry participants to present challenges, ideas, experiences, novel applications, and studies of existing methods.

Help

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.

Brackets

You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).

Phrases

Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
