Abstract: The ambulatory activity of a person may be used as one component within an overall wearable sensor system that predicts the onset of mental health problems. Ergonomic smart sensors that can determine the total energy expenditure and type of ambulation may provide unique insights to the coping behaviour of stressed people. Rather than relying on wearable computers, a single smart miniature sensor that is worn 24/7 should perform the complex embedded recognition tasks while meeting difficult battery life, wireless communications and ergonomic constraints. The development and testing of such a smart sensor is described which takes into account action timeline variations, as well as action variations both intra individual and inter individual.
