ABSTRACT
This paper reports ongoing experience with the design and
everyday use of an electronic context-enabled in/out board.
We designed this application as part of the development of
a context toolkit and it proved a fruitful test-bed for
investigating issues of context sensor fusion. We describe
the first version of the application that used a single
context sensor and explain some usability problems it
raised. We analyze the limitations of available context
sensors and conclude that the usability problems cannot be
overcome using a single sensor. We suggest solutions
relying on the use of multiple context sensors and sensor
