OPPORTUNITY is project under the EU FET-Open funding1 in which we develop mobile systems to recognize human activity in dynamically varying sensor setups [1,2]. The system autonomously discovers available sensors around the user and self-configures to recognize desired activities. It reconfigures itself as the environment changes, and encompasses principles supporting autonomous operation in open-ended environments.OPPORTUNITYmainstreams ambient intelligence and improves user acceptance by relaxing constraints on body-worn sensor characteristics, and eases the deployment in real-world environments.We summarize key achievements of the project so far. The project outcomes are robust activity recognition systems. This may enable smarter activity-aware energy-management in buildings, and advanced activity-aware health assistants.
