Abstract
In this paper we consider human daily activity recognition using an acoustic sensor network (ASN) which consists of nodes distributed in a home environment. Assuming that the ASN is permanently recording, the vast majority of recordings is silence. Therefore, we propose to employ a computationally efficient two-stage sound recognition system, consisting of an initial sound activity detection (SAD) and a subsequent sound event classification (SEC), which is only activated once sound activity has been detected. We show how a low-latency activity detector with high temporal resolution can be trained from weak labels with low temporal resolution. We further demonstrate the advantage of using spatial features for the subsequent event classification task.
