This paper proposes a new data fusion method, which uses the designed construction matrix to fuse sensor and USRP data to realise Human Activity Recognition. At this point, Inertial Measurement Unit sensors and Universal Software-defined Radio Peripherals are used to collect human activities signals separately. In order to avoid the incompatibility problem with different collection devices, such as different sampling frequency caused inconsistency time axis. The Principal Component Analysis processing the fused data to dimension reduction without time that is performed to extract the time unrelated 5 × 5 feature matrix to represent corresponding activities. There are explores data fusion method between multiple devices and ensures accuracy without dropping. The technique can be extended to other types of hardware signal for data fusion.
