Recognition of Smoking Gesture Using Smart Watch Technology

by   Casey A Cole, et al.

Diseases resulting from prolonged smoking are the most common preventable causes of death in the world today. In this report we investigate the success of utilizing accelerometer sensors in smart watches to identify smoking gestures. Early identification of smoking gestures can help to initiate the appropriate intervention method and prevent relapses in smoking. Our experiments indicate 85 among other similar gestures using Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs). Our investigations concluded that information obtained from the x-dimension of accelerometers is the best means of identifying the smoking gesture, while y and z dimensions are helpful in eliminating other gestures such as: eating, drinking, and scratch of nose. We utilized sensor data from the Apple Watch during the training of the ANN. Using sensor data from another participant collected on Pebble Steel, we obtained a smoking identification accuracy of greater than 90 the Apple Watch. Finally, we have demonstrated the possibility of using smart watches to perform continuous monitoring of daily activities.
