The recorded data consists of observations of naturally performed manipulation tasks as encountered in everyday activities of human life. Several instances of a table-setting task were performed by different subjects, involving the manipulation of objects and the environment. We provide the original video sequences, fullbody motion capture data recorded by a markerless motion tracker, RFID tag readings and magnetic sensor readings from objects and the environment, as well as corresponding action labels. In this paper, we both describe how the data was computed, in particular the motion tracker and the labeling, and give examples what it can be used for. We present first results of an automatic method for segmenting the observed motions into semantic classes, and describe how the data can be integrated in a knowledge-based framework for reasoning about the observations.} } @InProceedings{beetz09qlts, author = {Michael Beetz and Jan Bandouch and Dominik Jain and Moritz Tenorth}, title = {{Towards Automated Models of Activities of Daily Life}}, booktitle = {First International Symposium on Quality of Life Technology -- Intelligent Systems for Better Living}, year = {2009}, address = {Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania USA}, bib2html_pubtype ={Conference Paper}, bib2html_rescat = {Learning,Models,Planning,Perception,Knowledge,Reasoning,Representation}, bib2html_groups = {Memoman,K4C,ProbCog}, bib2html_funding = {CoTeSys}, bib2html_domain = {Assistive Household}, abstract = {We propose automated probabilistic models of everyday activities (AM-EvA) as a novel technical means for the perception, interpretation, and analysis of everyday manipulation tasks and activities of daily life. AM-EvAs are based on action-related concepts in everyday activities such as action-related places (the place where cups are taken from the cupboard), capabilities (the objects that can be picked up single-handedly), etc. These concepts are probabilistically derived from a set of previous activities that are fully and automatically observed by computer vision and additional sensor systems. AM-EvA models enable robots and technical systems to analyze activities in the complete situation and activity context. They render the classification and the assessment of actions and situations objective and can justify the probabilistic interpretation with respect to the activities the concepts have been learned from. In this paper, we describe the current state of implementation of the system that realizes this idea of automated models of everyday activities and show example results from the observation and analysis of table setting episodes.} } @article{beetz10ameva, title={{Towards Automated Models of Activities of Daily Life}}, author={Michael Beetz and Moritz Tenorth and Dominik Jain and Jan Bandouch}, journal={Technology and Disability}, volume={22}, number= {1-2}, pages={27--40}, year={2010}, publisher={IOS Press}, bib2html_pubtype = {Journal}, bib2html_groups = {K4C, Memoman, ProbCog}, bib2html_funding = {CoTeSys, MeMoMan}, bib2html_rescat = {Perception, Models, Representation, Learning, Reasoning}, bib2html_domain = {Assistive Household} }
