A real time detection of human movements is a practical solution to monitor aged people or mentally challenged people with the permission of their family. Household person is needed to monitor the elder and differently abled people. Instead of monitoring their activities with the help of other people, smart phones are used as a remote to monitor their activities and simultaneously send the message to their family members. The accelerometer sensor placed in the mobile phones. It is used to identify the activities of the person who holds the mobile phones. The most commonly used classifier technique is Naive Bayes classifier which has a limitation of handle with the large set of data. To overcome this defect, the proposed system classifies the data using k-nearest neighbor (K-NN) technique and Neuro evolution. This system recognize some representative human movements such as walking, climbing upstairs, climbing downstairs, standing, sitting and running ,using a conventional mobile equipped with a single tri-axial accelerometer sensor.
