© 2016 IEEE. Most recently, activity localization and recognition has increasingly attracted significant attentions due to its broad range of applications to support smart devices. Pioneer systems based on WiFi signals usually require six to eight antennas to localize the activity while the commodity WiFi infrastructure does not meet this requirement. In addition, they also require the priori learning of wireless signals to recognize a pre-defined set of activities. In this paper, we present WiseFi, an activity localization and recognition system by leveraging fine-grained physical layer information on commodity off-the-shelf (COTS) WiFi devices. WiseFi harnesses the amplitude and the phase of Channel State Information (CSI), and the Angle-of-arrival (AOA) of blocked signals to localize and recognize human activity. The intuition behind WiseFi is that whenever the target occludes the incoming wireless signals, the power of AOA will drop in the same direction. Experimental results indicate that WiseFi can achieve comparable performance in activity localization and recognition on COTS WiFi devices.
