Abstract [en]

This paper describes the AGNES system, a technology for connecting people at home with their social network be means of off-the-shelf sensing devices and an Internet-based social network. The system provides the user with relevant information of the network by use of traditional information and communication technology as well as dedicated ambient and tangible devices. We describe briefly the requirements on such technology that were elaborated in the frame of the AGNES project, and give an overview of the system developed.
