Abstract

In this study, in order to develop a monitoring system that takes into account privacy issues, we investigated user preferences in terms of the monitoring and privacy protec-tion levels. The people on the monitoring side wanted the monitoring system to allow them to monitor in detail. Con-versely, it was observed for the people being monitored that the more detailed the monitoring, the greater the feelings of being surveilled intrusively. Evaluation experiments were performed using the location data of three people in differ-ent living areas. The results of the experiments show that it is possible to control the levels of monitoring and privacy protection without being affected by the shape of a living area by adjusting the quantization level of location informa-tion. Furthermore, it became clear that the granularity of location information satisfying the people on the monitored side and the monitoring side is different.
