Abstract: Human activity recognition(HAR) is used to describe basic activities that humans are performing using the sensors that we have in smartphones. The data for this activity recognition is captured by various sensors of mobile phones or wristbands such as accelerometer, gyroscope and gravity sensors.HAR has grabbed the attention of various researchers due to its vast demand in the fields of sport training, security, entertainment health monitoring,computer vision and robotics. In this project we compare different machine learning and deep learning algorithms to find a better approach for HAR. The dataset comprises six activities i.e. walking, sleeping, sitting,moving upward, moving downwards and standing.In this demonstration we also showed confusion matrix,accuracy and multi log loss of various algorithms. With the help of accuracy, confusion matrix of algorithms we compare and determine the best approach for HAR. This will help in future research to map the activities of humans using one of the best approaches used.
