WHAT: ACTIVITY SENSING In our Portholes system, a video image for each user is snapped once every five minutes. The images for the last hour (12 of them) are kept. The activity sensing capability uses a image difference mechanism to derive a measure for the amount of change ( ) between two successive video images. This measure is represented as a red horizontal bar at the bottom of the video image and can optionally be used to order the images in the Viewer (Figure 1).
