Our focus in this research is on the use of deep learning approaches for human activity recognition (HAR) scenario, in which inputs are multichannel time series signals acquired from a set of body-worn inertial sensors and outputs are predefined human activities. Here, we present a feature learning method that deploys convolutional neural networks (CNN) to automate feature learning from the raw inputs in a systematic way. The influence of various important hyper-parameters such as number of convolutional layers and kernel size on the performance of CNN was monitored. Experimental results indicate that CNNs achieved significant speed-up in computing and deciding the final class and marginal improvement in overall classification accuracy compared to the baseline models such as Support Vector Machines and Multi-layer perceptron networks.
