Abstract: A novel approach has been developed for recognizing objects in pockets and for recording the events related to the objects. Information on putting an object into or taking it out of a pocket is closely related to user contexts. For example, when a house key is taken out from a pocket, the owner of the key is likely just getting home. We implemented a objects-in-pocket recognition device, which has a pair of infrared sensors arranged in a matrix, and life log software to obtain the time stamp of events happening. We evaluated whether or not the system could deal with one of five objects (a smartphone, ticket, hand, key, and lip balm) using template matching. When one registered object (the smartphone, ticket, or key) was put in the pocket, our system recognized the object correctly 91% of the time on average. We also evaluated our system in one action scenario. With our system's time stamps, user could easily remember what he took on that day and when he used the items.
