Abstract

This paper outlines a tool for the visualization of data generated within Intelligent Environments. This tool has been designed with a focus on flexibility and customizability hence facilitating application to a range of areas including institutionalized or home-based healthcare monitoring. Through the use of an object toolbox, non-technical users can rapidly re-create a visual representation (aka a “Scene”) of an intelligent environment and connect this scene to an active data repository. Data generated within the environment can be visualized in real-time, or summarized using a density ring visualization format that can be customized based on user defined rules to highlight events of particular interest. The tool was tested within a smart lab used as an active research environment. Collection of data over a one week period resulted in 3840 sensor activations. Visualization of this dataset illustrates the potential of the tool to highlight normal and abnormal activity trends within the environment.
