Contactless Human Activity Analysis

About the book [Download the call for chapters & please share]

In recent years, contactless sensors have gained popularity for contactless physiological signal detection leading to novel innovations in human activity and behavior analysis, authentication, scene analysis, anomaly detection, and many other related tasks. The tremendous advancements in high-performance sensors, as well as the rapid growth in computation power, have made possible to acquire and analyze contactless sensor data for real-time applications. The field is also flourished with a multitude of techniques and methods for improved efficiency, higher accuracy and faster computation in recent times. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the past and recent research works associated with different contactless sensors focusing on human activity analysis including recent techniques from the areas of artificial intelligence, deep learning, and Human-Computer Interaction. It also sheds light on advanced application areas and futuristic research topics such as contactless activity analysis in healthcare, activity recognition on smart mobile devices and driver and pedestrian behavior analysis for autonomous driving. It is expected that the systematic analysis of the state-of-the-art techniques covered in this book will help to further our understanding of the current state and future potential of contactless human activity research.
