This paper explores an improvement to activity recognition within a Smart Home environment using the Dempster-Shafer theory of evidence. This approach has the ability to be used to monitor human activities in addition to managing uncertainty in sensor based readings. A three layer lattice structure has been proposed, which can be used to combine the mass functions derived from sensors along with sensor context and subsequently can be used to infer activities. From the total 209 recorded activities throughout a two week period, 85 toileting activities were considered. The results from this work demonstrated that this method was capable of detecting 75 of the toileting activities correctly within a Smart Home environment equating to a classification accuracy of 88.2%.
