Knowledge Engineering for Unsupervised Canine Posture Detection from IMU Data

12TH ADVANCES IN COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT TECHNOLOGY CONFERENCE (ACE15).

By: M. Winters n, R. Brugarolas n, J. Majikes n, S. Mealin n, S. Yuschak n, B. Sherman n, A. Bozkurt n, D. Roberts n

author keywords: Animal-computer interaction; Classification algorithms; canine training; accelerometers; animal-machine interfaces
