Proxemics Awareness in Kitchen AS-A-PAL: Tracking Objects and Human in Perspective
2013 (English)In: Intelligent Environments (IE), 2013 9th International Conference on, 2013, 157-164 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Spatial relationships or proxemics play an important role in how humans interact with other people and objects in an environment, yet spatial relationships are not thoroughly exploited within smart environments. Objects designed to be aware of its proxemics facilitate implicit and explicit interaction with humans. Kitchen As-A-Pal is an interactive smart kitchen that provides an infrastructure for sensing and modeling proxemics among objects and human using a sonar network and RFID technology. Position, movement, identity and location are the proxemics dimensions explored in kitchen As-A-Pal. A pilot study of a breakfast scenario comprising of 9 everyday activities in Kitchen As-A-Pal using 2 subjects yielded promising proximity tracking results with a precision of 100% and a recall of 68.3% for spatial zones with high and medium average time percentages (ATP). Also, 53.21% ATP has more than 95% recall values.
