Abstract

Activity recognition plays an important role in several researches. Nevertheless, the existing researches suffer various kinds of problems when human has a different lifestyle. To address these shortcomings, this paper proposes the activity log in the context-aware infrastructure ontology in order to interlink the history user’s context and current user’s context. In this approach, the location-based concept is built into the activity log for producing the description logic (DL) rules. The relationship between activities in the same location is investigated for making the result of activity recognition more accurately. We also conduct the semantic ontology search (SOS) system for evaluating the effectiveness of our proposed ideas. The semantic data can be retrieved through SOS system, including, human activity and activity of daily living (ADL). The results from SOS system showed the advantage overcome the existing system when uses the location-based concept in activity log ontology.
