Introduction to Methods for Measuring Activity
There is currently a range of technologies available to record movement and location in different environments. These correspond mostly to free-living (i.e. urban environments, sports grounds) or “controlled” health-related environments (i.e. health-related laboratories). Topological multi-agent behavioral models are also available to monitor and predict movement and space-use. These are well-established in various fields of research and scientific work remains further to develop them. Such models are mostly relevant to large-scale design environments (e.g. urban) and are mathematical, operating under functions of the field of topology.
