Tracking people: technological and methodological challenges

Seminar three: 15th June 2017, University of Leeds

This seminar explored the current state of tracking devices and future design solutions, identified knowledge gaps in relation to the design and use of the technologies and examined the potential for technologies to be improved by considering the challenges across domains. The seminar also examined the use of research in designing and evaluating the role and effectiveness of tracking devices, considered the challenges, benefits and limitations of such research and discussed future research designs and methodological tools.
