Activity Recognition with Ubiquitous Sensing

Project description


ARUS python package provides a computational and experimental framework to manage and process sensory data or wireless devices, to develop and run activity recognition algorithms on the data, and to create interactive programs using the algorithms and wireless devices.

This package is licensed under GPL version 3.

PyPI version
deployment build
unittest and build test


python >= 3.6.1
# Need these SDKs to install arus[metawear] on Windows.
Visual Studio C++ SDK (v14.1)
Windows SDK (10.0.16299.0)
Windows SDK (10.0.17763.0)

# Need these packages to install arus[metawear] on Ubuntu or equivalent packages on other linux distributions.


> pip install arus
# Optionally, you may install plugins via pip extra syntax.
> pip install arus[metawear]
> pip install arus[demo]
> pip install arus[dev]

Optional components

arus[metawear]: This optional component installs dependency supports for streaming data from Bluetooth metawear sensors.

arus[demo]: This optional component installs dependency supports for running the demo app that demonstrates a real-time interactive activity recognition training and testing program.

arus[dev]: These optional component installs dependency supports for running some package and version management functions in the module.

Get started for development

> git clone
> cd arus
> # Install poetry python package management tool
> # On Linux
> curl -sSL | python
> # On windows powershell
> (Invoke-WebRequest -Uri -UseBasicParsing).Content | python
> # Install package dependencies
> poetry install
> # Install optional component dependencies
> poetry install --extras "metawear demo dev"
> # Run unit tests
> poetry run pytest

Development conventions

  1. Use Google's python coding guidance:
  2. Use arus package release VERSION --release to bump and tag versions. VERSION can be manual version code following semantic versioning, path, minor, or major.
  3. Changelogs are automatically generated when building the documentation website, do not create it manually.
  4. Pypi release will be handled by github action deploy.yml, which will be triggered whenever a new tag is pushed. Therefore, developers should only tag release versions.
  5. After commits, even not bumping and releasing the package, you may run arus package docs --release to update the documentation website, where the developer version changelogs will be updated immediately.
