The proposal of Sociedade 5.0 is to contribute to a better quality of life for individuals, and for this, it is also necessary to know these individuals. This need has led researchers and organizations to develop and use technological systems and devices for data collection. These systems and devices take different forms and are increasingly present in the daily lives of individuals. Data collection is performed actively, namely through sensors, or passively, receiving the data that is entered by its users, often unconsciously. This paper presents an initial literature review where it is intended to investigate which technologies and the main sources for collecting information about individuals and how this information can be gathered to contribute to Society 5.0. This investigation aims to know some of the possibilities of these technologies and contribute to future work on this topic.
