Tahera Hossain, a student of Prof. Sozo Inoue’s lab of Department of Human Intelligence Systems, Graduate School of Life Science and Systems Engineering, won the Best Poster Award at the international conference, 2018 ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing (Ubicomp 2018).
She is a second-year doctoral student of Graduate School of Engineering and presented her paper “Activity Recognition by Using LoRaWAN Sensor” at the conference. Ubicomp is the most renowned conference in the field of ubiquitous research and more than 700 participants from over 30 countries and regions including researchers of top-most universities attend, and her paper won the Best Poster Award among 77 posters accepted.
In her paper, she explores LoRaWAN sensor for human activity recognition. She proposed an activity recognition framework by exploiting LoRaWAN sensor which is the first research work of human activity recognition using this new LPWA technology. She highlighted the challenges in handling LoRaWAN sensors when multiple sensors send data all together in a facility such as a nursing home, and this is the point highly acclaimed for the award.
