This research developed both hardware and software to understand people's learning activities in real environments. Firstly we developed the ubiquitous sensor system which consists of microphone arrays, laser range finders and wireless units. We also developed a calibration mechanism to enable users to install system easily into real environments such as an elementary school. Secondly, we installed the ubiquitous sensor system into a science room at an elementary school and gathered sensor data during science classes. We confirmed that the system has enough capability to analyze several activities which are related learning situations such as sound activity and laughter events during classes.
