Proceedings, Vol. 2, Pages 99: Computational Topology to Monitor Human Occupancy
Proceedings doi: 10.3390/proceedings2020099
The recent advances in sensing technologies, embedded systems, and wireless communication technologies, make it possible to develop smart systems to monitor human activities continuously. The occupancy of specific areas or rooms in a smart building is an important piece of information, to infer the behavior of people, or to trigger an advanced surveillance module. We propose a method based on computational topology to infer the occupancy of a room monitored for a week by a system of low-cost sensors.
