2 Data Analysis An activity result is binary and need statistical analysis on a series of tests. There exists four possible situations: 34 M. Silva et al. – True positive (TP): a fall occurs and the device detects it. – False positive (FP): the device announces a fall, but it did not occur. – True negative (TN): a normal (no fall) movement is performed, the device does not declare a fall. – False Negative (FN): a fall occurs but the device does not detect it. In [15] was also proposed a classification and evaluation of fall detectors.

The popularity of mobile phones is likely to continuously increase in the near future due to decreasing prices, thus projecting an overall acceptance regarding it as a fall detection platform. 2 Major Differences When Doing It on a Mobile Phone Carrying a mobile phone implies the user choice of its place. This in turn increases the difficulty of fall detection. The sensor location on the body relatively to the point of impact modifies the pattern of the recorded acceleration signal [6]. Besides position variability, some chaotic environments like a loose pocket might increase the turbulence of the mobile phone sensor.

IEEE Pervasive Computing 3(2), 30–35 (2004) 15. ie Abstract. It is commonly agreed that a 15-40% reduction of building energy consumption is achievable by efficiently operated buildings when compared with typical practice. Existing research has identified that the level of information available to Building Managers with existing Building Management Systems and Environmental Monitoring Systems (BMS/EMS) is insufficient to perform the required performance based building assessment. The majority of today’s buildings are insufficiently sensored to obtain an unambiguous understanding of performance.
