Abstract : Human fall detection plays a vital part in the design of sensor based alarming system, aid physical therapists not only to lessen after fall effect and also to save human life. Accurate and timely identification can offer quick medical services to the injured people and prevent from serious consequences. Several vision-based approaches have been developed by the placement of cameras in diverse everyday environments. At present times, deep learning (DL) models particularly convolutional neural networks (CNNs) have gained much importance in the fall detection tasks. With this motivation, this paper presents a new vision based elderly fall event detection using deep learning (VEFED-DL) model. The proposed VEFED-DL model involves different stages of operations namely preprocessing, feature extraction, classification, and parameter optimization. Primarily, the digital video camera is used to capture the RGB color images and the video is extracted into a set of frames. For improving the image quality and eliminate noise, the frames are processed in three levels namely resizing, augmentation, and min–max based normalization. Besides, MobileNet model is applied as a feature extractor to derive the spatial features that exist in the preprocessed frames. In addition, the extracted spatial features are then fed into the gated recurrent unit (GRU) to extract the temporal dependencies of the human movements. Finally, a group teaching optimization algorithm (GTOA) with stacked autoencoder (SAE) is used as a binary classification model to determine the existence of fall or non-fall events. The GTOA is employed for the parameter optimization of the SAE model in such a way that the detection performance can be enhanced. In order to assess the fall detection performance of the presented VEFED-DL model, a set of simulations take place on the UR fall detection dataset and multiple cameras fall dataset. The experimental outcomes highlighted the superior performance of the presented method over the recent methods.
