Abstract: The ubiquitous presence of smart phones allow for 24X7 monitoring of human activity patterns, whether counting daily steps, distance walked/ ran or hours slept in a night. All of this is captured via a number of sensors, just as GPS monitoring and the tri-axis accelerometer. In out research we will cover the tri-axis accelerometer and their variants and present few algorithms to extract its signal and count steps or kind of physical activity.
