Wearable optical sensors for activity spotting

This PhD position is one of the 19 prestigious Marie Curie fellowships for PhD and Postdoc positions that are available within iCareNet.

Position description: 

This project will investigate a novel concept for wearable cameras in activity recognition, specifically to use an optical sensors with a small field of view placed at strategic locations to refine recognition of low-complexity sensors. The project will develop, implement, and evaluate algorithms that run on a small embedded platform, such as a watch. At the same time it strives to significantly advance activity spotting techniques reaching precision and recall over 90% on complex spotting tasks.

Interested candidates are invited to submit their application material for one or more positions within the network. In addition, applicants are asked to provide a 1-page statement on their motivation to become part of this exciting network in PDF format by email to icarenet_apply@lists.actlab.ele.tue.nl The statement may be reviewed by all iCareNet partner organisations.
