What is Sensor Information

Handbook of Research on Socio-Technical Design and Social Networking Systems
Sensors in smart environments provide us with information about its inhabitants, their activities, and their interactions. Cameras and microphones allow audio-visual processing of perceived activity. Proximity and pressure sensors tell us about the location of inhabitants. Such sensors allow us to track the inhabitants and their activities in the environment. Devices that measure physiological information, including brain activity, can provide detailed information about the affective state of a user.
