Visualization of Sensor Data

Visualization of Sensor Data

3D virtual environments are efficient tools for visualizing different types of information. In this study, several ways of using real-world information gained from GPS, wearable sensors as well as WiFI and Bluetooth mobile phone connection data have been employed for various visualizations and content creation purposes. GPS data was used for controlling an agent in a 3D virtual environment depicting a real city. Also WiFi and Bluetooth connection data was used to measure pedestrian traffic and demonstrate how virtual cities can be populated according to different types of city zones. Furthermore, accelerometer and proximity sensor data was used to capture and visualize elderly patient activities. The visualization was evaluated with nurses working with elderly patients.
