  annote = {Technology within the home environment is becoming widely
    accepted as a means to facilitate independent
    living. Nevertheless, practical issues of detecting different
    tasks between multiple persons within the same environment along
    with managing instances of uncertainty associated with recorded
    sensor data are two key challenges yet to be fully solved. This
    work presents details of how computer vision techniques can be
    used as both alternative and complementary means in the assessment
    of behaviour in home based sensorised environments. Within our
    work we assessed the ability of vision processing techniques in
    conjunction with sensor based data to deal with instances of
    multiple occupancy. Our Results indicate that the inclusion of the
    video data improved the overall process of task identification by
    detecting and recognizing multiple people in the environment using
    color based tracking algorithm.},
