Sensors for healthcare: Would you want them in your home?

Alison Burrows, Rachael Gooberman-Hill, David Coyle

    Research output: Other contribution


    This paper describes some of the challenges set within SPHERE, a large-scale Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration that aims to develop sensor systems to monitor people’s health and wellbeing in the home. In particular we discuss the dual task facing the User-Centered Design research group, to ensure the development of inclusive and desirable domestic healthcare technology. On the one hand, we seek to gain a rich understanding of the many envisaged users of the SPHERE system. On the other hand, for the user experience requirements to be translated into tangible outputs, it is crucial that we effectively communicate these findings to the broader team of SPHERE engineers and computer scientists.
