In the last chapter, we introduced processing of each type of raw sensor data independently to realize different levels of recognition capabilities. We found that inertial sensors provide information about movement across different axes. Audio streams can be processed not only for sound types but also words and natural language. We also showed how to recognize different objects, faces, activities, and more. Now we imagine what is possible if we were able to correlate the understanding across multiple sensor types simultaneously. This ...
