Social Sensor Web: Towards a Conceptual Framework

Abstract : Sensor technology has become increasingly pervasive, leading to its use in many areas, such as health care and wellness. Current technologies and services are based on one-way connectivity, such that sensors are primarily used to transmit information. Though data generation is essential to the pursuit of meaningful information, having the right information at the right time in the right context is what successfully integrates the social web into real-world situations. This paper extends the concept of the Internet of Things and develops a conceptual framework of the Social Sensor Web that employs sensors to elaborate context-aware information in order to determine an effective approach to social interaction. The paper also highlights the importance of dual connectivity of sensor devices through workshops based on the state of the art. We present five dimensions of the Social Sensor Web that can serve as a guide for designing future health and wellness technologies.
