Daily human behavior in an indoor environment is identified, and activities are defined using outputs from four kinds of tin oxide gas sensors installed in the living room of a house. The beginning and end of indoor human activities and the ignition of an oil heater in the monitoring room can be recognized by analyzing the output patterns of the sensors. A frequency analyzing method is useful to recognize human behavior clearly. The sensor's output patterns while a person sleeps are also changed by the attributes of the subjects. The patterns fluctuate frequently for a young person but show no variation for an aged individual. A person generates some gases while sleeping; these gases have an effect upon the sensor output.
