People grow through experience if they meet life honestly and courageously. This is how character is built.
Time passes faster and faster, but with every project I always want to find the next challenge and the next challenge is just as exciting as the previous one

Creativity is putting your imagination to work, and it's produced the most extraordinary results in human culture
The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows
I hope I raised more questions than I have given answers
Do the thing you're good at. Not many people are lucky enough to be so good at something
Research is creating new knowledge
I have completed multiple research projects, including, Adaptive Intrusion Detection and Response Mechanism for Mobile Ad Hoc Applications, remote vital sign monitoring & assistance of patients using BASN, Provision of Security, reliability and QoS in BASN applied to healthcare applications. He has proposed various solutions for network layer security attacks by IDS, IPS, QoS and reliability issues of Mobile Ad Hoc and sensors Networks. Currently he is focusing on investigating & providing solutions for real community problems through modeling and assistive technology. He also working on project on emerging technologies such as Blockchain challenges and applications. He has published over 55 peer review papers in international journal and conferences including a patent submission. Total Impact Factor of his publications is 31.30. He has also presented his research and tutorials in several international conference and seminars including IEEE WCNC, IEEE ICUMT, IEEE INMIC etc. Current Impact Factor of my publications is 31.30 (Research Gate: http://www.researchgate.net/profile/Adnan_Nadeem2). My research work has been cited more than 695 times see google scholar: (https://scholar.google.com.pk/citations?user=9fXG_OkAAAAJ&hl=en ). We have filed a patent related to our work on “SmartPrayerAid for Deafblind persons”, submitted to government of Pakistan for review.

Data Set Information:
The dataset comprises body motion recordings for several volunteers of diverse profile while performing certain physical activities. Sensors placed on the subject's waist is used to measure the motion experienced by diverse body parts, namely, acceleration and rate of turn. Data is divided into five age and weight groups categories.
|S. No.||Age Groups||Male||Female||Total|
|1||41 – 50 yrs.||3||3||6|
|2||51 – 60 yrs.||33||30||63|
|3||61 – 70 yrs.||13||6||19|
|4||71 – 80 yrs.||13||3||16|

The collected dataset comprises body motion and vital signs recordings for several volunteers of diverse profile while performing 3physical activities (Table 1). Shimmer3 wearable sensors were used for the recordings. The sensors were respectively placed on the subject's waist attached by using elastic straps (as shown in the figure in attachment). The use of multiple sensors permits us to measure the motion experienced by diverse body parts, namely, the acceleration, the rate of turn, thus better capturing the body dynamics. All sensing modalities are recorded at a sampling rate of 50 Hz(normal range), which is considered sufficient for capturing human activity. few session was recorded using a video camera. The activities were collected in an out-of-lab environment with no constraints on the way these must be executed, with the exception that the subject should try their best when executing them.
The activity set is listed in the following:
L1: Standing still (5sec)
L4: Walking (1 min)
L11: Stand to Sitting (3 steps) (time varies)
NOTE: In brackets are the number of repetitions (Nx) or the duration of the exercises (min).
A complete and illustrated description (including table of activities, sensor setup, etc.) of the dataset is provided in the papers presented in the presentation section.
The data collected for each subject is stored in a different log file: 'shimmer XXX.xls'(XXX will be number between 001 to 999). Each file contains the samples (by rows) recorded for all sensors (by columns). The labels used to identify the activities are similar to the abovementioned (e.g., the label for walking is '4').
The meaning of each column is detailed next:
Column 1: Time stamp raw
Column 2: Time stamp in millisecond
Column 3: acceleration raw (X axis)
Column 4: Acceleration cal (X axis)
Column 5: acceleration raw (Y axis)
Column 6: Acceleration cal (Y axis)
Column 7: : acceleration raw (Z axis)
Column 8: Acceleration cal (Z axis)
Column 9: gyro raw (X axis)
Column 10: gyro cal (X axis)
Column 11: gyro raw (Y axis)
Column 12: gyro cal (Y axis)
Column 13: gyro raw (Z axis)
Column 14: gyro cal (Z axis)
*Units: Acceleration (m/s^2), gyroscope (deg/s).
