In this paper, the application of a hybrid model combining the fuzzy min-max (FMM) neural network and the classification and regression tree (CART) to human activity recognition is presented. The hybrid FMM-CART model capitalizes the merits of both FMM and CART in data classification and rule extraction. To evaluate the effectiveness of FMM-CART, two data sets related to human activity recognition problems are conducted. The results obtained are higher than those reported in the literature. More importantly, practical rules in the form of a decision tree are extracted to provide explanation and justification for the predictions from FMM- CART. This outcome positively indicates the potential of FMM- CART in undertaking human activity recognition tasks.
