Pervasive computing envisions implicit interaction between people and their intelligent environments instead of individual devices, inevitably leading to groups of individuals interacting with the same intelligent environment. These environments must therefore be aware not only of user contexts and activities, but the contexts and activities of groups of users as well. This poster will demonstrate an experiment conducted towards understanding hierarchical multi-user group activity recognition using wearable sensors. The experiment will explore different data abstraction levels in terms of recognition rates, power consumption and wireless communication volumes for the devices involved.
