Abstract Learning and recognizing human activities of daily living(ADL), is very useful and essential to build a pervasive home monitoring system. These monitoring technologies are indispensable for developing the next generation of smart houses. In this paper we describe a fuzzy logic system for recognizing activities in home environment using a set of sensors: physiological sensors (cardiac frequency, activity or agitation, posture and fall detection sensor), microphones, infrared sensors, debit sensors and state-change sensors. Motivated by the fact that Fuzzy controllers have been successfully embedded within billions of dollars in commercial products, plus the characteristic of data providing from each sensor, the fusion of the different sensors has been performed by using fuzzy logic. This fuzzy logic approach allowed us to recognize several Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) for Ubiquitous Healthcare.
