Abstract

Various embodiments of the present invention provide systems and method for adaptive monitoring of physical movement. As one example, a method for adaptive initialization of a monitoring system is discussed. The method includes associating a monitor device with a monitor target; receiving information indicating movement of the monitor target from the monitor device; plotting or defining one or more paths corresponding to the movement of the monitor target during a learning period; and based at least in part on the one or more paths, identifying one or more exclusion zones where movement of the monitor target is restricted.
