When introducing a novel sensor to the context recognition community, one of the major challenges is to support reproducibility under similar conditions. In order to get a grasp on this process, the authors divide the context recognition into three subsections: the physical environment and how it is affected by the context, the sensor and how it can represent the attributes of the physical world, and the classifying method and how it deciphers the sensory representation. They then outlined their recommendation for a methodology to formally describe the context and sensor subdivisions in order to isolate and quantify error within the system.
