Abstract

The availability of datasets capturing the performance of activities of daily living is limited by difficulties associated with the collection of such data. Software solutions can mitigate these limitations, providing researchers with the ability to rapidly generate simulated data. This paper describes the use of IE Sim to create a simulated intelligent environment within which activities of daily living can be performed using a virtual avatar. IE Sim has been demonstrated to facilitate the generation of datasets capturing normal activity performance in addition to overlapping activities and abnormal activities such as hazardous scenarios.
