The aim of activity recognition is to determine the physical action being performed by one or more users based on a series of observations made during the user's actions in the relevant environment. Significant advancements in the field of human activity have resulted in the creation of novel ways for supporting elderly persons in doing their tasks independently. Using ambient computing, this type of service will be manageable. Many of services are provided by ambient technology, involving home automation tools, monitoring the behaviour of diseased individuals, and utility management. Numerous academics are focusing their efforts on computer software architectures, system infrastructure, and distributed applications utilising sensor devices. Aim of this project is to develop an algorithm that can perform human activity recognition (HAR) better than the existing state-of-the-art approach. Several tasks must be done to achieve this goal. To compete with an existing HAR system, this study will rely on secondary data from the cutting-edge experiment; no new data will be collected. The central experiment will be used to quantitatively identify the best classifier based on prediction accuracy. The current study entails monitoring and assessing existing literature in order to generate hypotheses that may be tested via experiment.
