In this sense, various contextual information can be used to adapt application aspects, and to properly display the list of cars to rent, enabling users to make choices and to accomplish the main task.
The key functional requirements to support this task include the capacity to: GPS ; provide personal information before renting the car; access details about the car rental before making the final decision.
Two contexts of use are targeted: Physical environment is that of a home, platform is a Desktop PC, and the user is an English speaker who does not know the city where the car has to be rented. Physical environment is a busy street, platform is a smartphone, and the user is walking fast busy eyes.
Models involved in the car rental use case and the process. Task models for the two targeted contexts of use. A digital home has a network of consumer electronics, mobile, and PC devices that cooperate transparently.
All computing devices and home appliances conform to a set of interoperable standards so that everything can be controlled by means of an interactive system.
Different electronic services can be offered by a digital home system, including but not limited to e. These functionalities are made available through context sensitive user interfaces. In fact, such UIs are capable of adapting to different computing platforms touch-based devices, web, mobile, TV, PDA, DECT handset, voice portal …users children, teenagers, adults, elderly, disabled people, … and environments or situations at home, away, at night, while music is playing, ….
The final aim is to provide a seamless and unified user experience, which is critical in the digital home domain. To this regard, different automatic UI adaptations can be possible: The key functional requirements for this application are the following: Physical environment is that of a home, platform is a Desktop PC, and the user controls the home devices without accessing directly the physical controls.
Physical environment is a street, and the user is moving. The user controls the home devices remotely, in order to e.
In this use case, the context dimension considered is limited to the platform aspect. The desktop version of the Digital Home application.
The mobile version of the Digital Home application. Models involved in the Digital Home use case and the process. The use case considered in the Digital Home exemplar Mori et al.
Because we consider the platform as the only dimension of the context of use, the other context aspects have been greyed out in Figure UC2.
From the task model, it is possible to derive an Abstract UI for each targeted context of use. On the one hand, this AUI will be expressed using a modality and platform -independent vocabulary also shared by other AUIs addressing different computing platformson the other hand, this AUI will include only the abstract interaction units that make sense in that considered computing platform a desktop PC.
A similar process is followed to obtain a Final UI for a different platform e. The Task Model for the Digital Home. Omitting minimalistic UIs through the use of an universal interaction device in production environments Responsible: The SmartFactoryKL is the first ambient intelligent production environment for demonstration and development purposes worldwide.
Development of user interfaces is a secondary field in the production industry, but the impact of user interface quality is increasingly independent of the application domain, which is a significant factor of success for the entire product.
After three years of research, a first prototype has been finished that allows for controlling the production line using a single universal interaction device able to adapt to varying field devices according to the actual context of use, in a complex, model-based approach.
To handle the resulting diversity of user interfaces, we developed a universal interaction device — the SmartMote — which is capable of providing control over various devices in these environments.
Depending on the context of use, the visualization of the SmartMote is generated and adapted during run-time in order to provide a homogeneous intra-device user experience.
Adaptation rules are further used to specify the adaptation that can be applied on those models at run-time. Models involved in the Minimalist-UI use case and the process. From a field study conducted with deaf people in the context of a national project involving cognitive scientists, linguists, and computer scientists, we adopted the metaphor of a learning story as the basis for organising different types of learning material: We report on the use of a user interface abstract model in the development of the interactive story editor, to be used by tutors and teachers to organise the course material and path, and which generates interactive pages for the students.
The key functional requirements to support developers of course include: The context of use is that of the generation of a course by a teacher, possibly involving in the process tutors who will then have to assist the learners.
Learners and tutors will then interact with the generated web pages Bottoni et al. The development relies on an abstract model of the learning domain, in which stories are seen as workflows:The Embedded Safety & Security Summit (ESSS) focuses on the safety and security aspects of the critical embedded system and is an exclusive arena for the whole embedded community to learn, interact and nurture.
ESSS is the fifth edition of this successful initiative is driven by LDRA with support from our partners, clients, industry & professional bodies and government agencies. M.S. students take a minimum of 30 credits that consist of 24 credits of courses and a 6-credit research thesis. A student's program of courses in the M.S.
program is developed in cooperation with the student's academic advisor with a minimum of 12 credits at the level. We study the interactions between climate change and biogeochemical cycles, and focus on the processes that maintain and alter the composition of the atmosphere, and hence the climate.
