Detection of Human Movements with Pressure Floor Sensors

Abstract: Following the recent Internet of Everything (IoE) trend, several general-purpose devices have been proposed to acquire as much information as possible from the environment and from people interacting with it. Among the others, sensing floors are recently attracting the interest of the research community. In this paper, we propose a new model to store and process floor data. The model does not assume a regular grid distribution of the sensing elements and is based on the ground reaction force (GRF) concept, widely used in biomechanics. It allows the correct detection and tracking of people, outperforming the common background subtraction schema adopted in the past. Several tests on a real sensing floor prototype are reported and discussed
