This project is investigating the availability of sensors for social research, their usability and usefulness for a variety of research settings. It develops resources for training courses in the methodological, technical and ethical aspects, and shares experiences from the HomeSense field trial in volunteer households. See recent posts.
Our investigations touch upon a range of interests across the social sciences, humanities and ICT disciplines, among individuals using sensors and DIY applications, businesses concerned with IoT developments, and policy makers concerned with ethical and legal issues.
