Utilising Mobile Phone RSSI Metric for Human Activity Detection
Doyle, John and Farrell, Ronan and McLoone, Sean and McCarthy, Tim (2009) Utilising Mobile Phone RSSI Metric for Human Activity Detection. Signals and Systems Conference (ISSC 2009) IET . pp. 1-6.
Recent research into urban analysis through the use of mobile device usage statistics has presented a need for the collection of this data independently from mobile network operators. In this paper we propose that cumulative received signal strength indications (RSSI) for overall mobile device transmissions in an area may provide such independent information. A process for the detection of high density areas within the RSSI temporal data set will be demonstrated. Finally, future applications for this collection method are discussed and we highlight its potential to complement traditional metric analysis techniques, for the representation of intensity of urban and local activities and their evolution through time and space.
