Modern smart cities are focusing on smart transportation solutions to detect and mitigate the effects of various traffic incidents in the city. To materialize this, roadside units and ambient transportation sensors are being deployed to collect vehicular data that provides real-time traffic monitoring. In this paper, we first propose a real-time da...
Article
Full-text available
Information on congestion of buses, which are one of the major public transportation modes, can be very useful in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic. Because it is unrealistic to manually monitor the number of riders on all buses in operation, a system that can automatically monitor congestion is necessary. The main goal of this paper’s work is...
Article
Wireless sensing represented by WiFi channel state information (CSI) is now enabling various fields of applications such as person identification, human activity recognition, occupancy detection, localization, and crowd estimation these days. So far, those fields are mostly considered as separate topics in WiFi CSI-based methods, on the contrary, s...
Chapter
To improve the QoL of the elderly, it is essential to predict their stress states. In general, the stress state varies from day to day or time to time depending on what activities are performed and how long/strong. However, most existing studies predict the stress state using biometric data and specific activities (e.g., sleep time, exercise time a...

Evacuation shelters, which are urgently required during natural disasters, are designed to minimize the burden of evacuation on human survivors. However, the larger the scale of the disaster, the more costly it becomes to operate shelters. When the number of evacuees decreases, the operation costs can be reduced by moving the remaining evacuees to...

The collection of spatiotemporal tourism information is important in smart tourism and user-generated contents are perceived as reliable information. Participatory sensing is a useful method for collecting such data, and the active contribution of users is an important aspect for continuous and efficient data collection. This study has focused on t...

Full-text available
Numerous technologies exist for promoting a healthier lifestyle. These technologies collectively referred to as “Behavior Change Support Systems”. However, the majority of existing apps use quantitative data representation. Since it is difficult to understand the meaning behind quantitative data, this approach has been suggested to lower users’ mot...
Article
Full-text available
In disaster situations, special support for the disaster weak are crucial to keep them safe. Common evacuation strategies guide individuals to the shelters closest to their present locations. If evacuees are unevenly distributed across areas, some shelters will not be able to accommodate all arriving evacuees due to the limited capacity of shelters...
Chapter
Floor vibrations caused by walking person (hereinafter, gait vibrations) have recently been explored as a way to determine their locations and identities, and the technologies for measuring such gaits may enable low-cost elderly monitoring services and crime prevention systems. In this paper, we report on the development of a system that can accura...
Chapter
Estimating the stress associated with activities of daily living in the home is important for understanding and improving residents’ quality of life. However, conventional stress estimation methods are mostly used in specific situations, and stress has not been estimated for long-term activities of daily living. In this paper, we visualize changes...
Article
Full-text available
Some respondents make careless responses due to the “satisficing,” which is an attempt to complete a questionnaire as quickly and easily as possible. To obtain results that reflect a fact, detecting satisficing and excluding the responses with satisficing from the analysis targets are required. One of the devised methods detects satisficing by addi...
Article
Full-text available
As the number of users who cook their own food increases, there is increasing demand for an optimal cooking procedure for multiple dishes, but the optimal cooking procedure varies from user to user due to the difference of each user’s cooking skill and environment. In this paper, we propose a system of presenting optimal cooking procedures that ena...

Rapid proliferation of mobile devices with various sensors have enabled Participatory Mobile Sensing (PMS). Several PMS platforms provide multiple functions for various sensing purposes, but they are suffering from the open issues: limited use of their functions for a specific scenario/case and requiring technical knowledge for organizers. In this...
Article
Full-text available
Information about a subjective user opinion towards an argument is crucial for argumentative systems in order to present appropriate content and adapt their behaviour to the individual user. However, requesting explicit feedback regarding the discussed arguments is often impractical and can hinder the interaction. To address this issue, we investig...
Article
Full-text available
In recent years, there has been a growing interest in travel applications that provide on-site personalized tourist spot recommendations. While generally helpful, most available options offer choices based solely on static information on places of interest without consideration of such dynamic factors as weather, time of day, and congestion, and wi...
Article
Full-text available
As aging populations continue to grow, primarily in developed countries, there are increasing demands for the system that monitors the activities of elderly people while continuing to allow them to pursue their individual, healthy, and independent lifestyles. Therefore, it is required to develop the activity of daily living (ADL) sensing systems th...
Article
Full-text available
In the tourism sector, user-generated information and communication among tourists are perceived to be more effective and reliable contents. In addition, the collection of dynamic tourism information with high spatio-temporal resolution is required to provide comfortable tourism in response to the changing tourism style with the advancement of info...
Article
In this paper, we design and develop a sensor-embedded office chair that can measure the posture of the office worker continuously without disturbing their job. In our system, eight accelerometers, that are attached at the back side of the fabric surface of the chair, are used for recognizing the posture. We propose three sitting posture recognitio...
Chapter
Walking has been attracting attention as an important means for prevention and improvement of lifestyle diseases, such as high blood pressure and diabetes. However, walking at a continuous pace with high load can be challenging, and health benefits cannot be expected when walking with low load. A walking pace support system is necessary in order to...

In the field of sports, there are increasing opportunities to use inertial measurement units (IMUs) to enhance the training process and improve the performance of athletes. We focus on kendo, a traditional martial art using shinai (bamboo swords) in Japan, and propose methods for detecting and recognizing strike activities using IMUs towards realiz...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Residents in cities typically use third-party platforms such as Google Maps for route planning services. While providing near real-time processing, these state of the art centralized deployments are limited to multiprocessing environments in data centers. This raises privacy concerns, increases risk for critical data and causes vulnerability to net...
Article
Full-text available
Cities are embracing data-intensive applications to maximize their constrained transportation networks. Platforms such as Google offer route planning services to mitigate the effect of traffic congestion. These use remote servers that require an Internet connection, which exposes data to increased risk of network failures and latency issues. Edge c...
