The Internet of Things (IoT) has become quite popular due to advancements in Information and Communications technologies and has revolutionized the entire research area in Human Activity Recognition (HAR). For the HAR task, vision-based and sensor-based methods can present better data but at the cost of users’ inconvenience and social constraints such as privacy issues. Due to the ubiquity of WiFi devices, the use of WiFi in intelligent daily activity monitoring for elderly persons has gained popularity in modern healthcare applications. Channel State Information (CSI) as one of the characteristics of WiFi signals, can be utilized to recognize different human activities. We have employed a Raspberry Pi 4 to collect CSI data for seven different human daily activities, and converted CSI data to images and then used these images as inputs of a 2D Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) classifier. Our experiments have shown that the proposed CSI-based HAR outperforms other competitor methods including 1D-CNN, Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM), and Bi-directional LSTM, and achieves an accuracy of around 95% for seven activities.
