since the function
"active life on open page / no life on page"

could be used for several features like
1) "better time on page detection for last page" #2041
2) "detect page is only opened in background" details in #5845
3) "do not count automatic visits from website watchers" #3556 and #5845
4) identify unknown robots
5) ...

=> what do you think to make it a general function within Piwik?

It could bundle all technologies to decide
"active life on open page / no life on page"

  • Via triggers from events
  • via additional mouse movement tracking
  • via additional scroll tracking
  • via ping
  • via visits from same visitor on other pages at same time
  • ...
  • via automatic timeout

and simply made the result available for every feature which needs it?

Of course not all technologies have to be active at the same time and one could develop a rule set
if no ...is send/is received.. try ...try ...if nothing: do automatic timeout

I guess not all parts of the issue are covered by the heart beat timer. But not sure if the other mentioned stuff is still that relevant 🤔
