Living in Smart Environments - 3rd year PhD Report

  1. 1. Third Year Evaluation (XXVI cycle) Luigi De Russis Living in Smart Environments: Interfaces, Interaction and Usability
  2. 2. HCI in the Ambient Intelligence field 2  Ambient Intelligence (AmI) vision of a future information society  in which people are empowered through a digital environment  aware of their presence and context  sensitive, adaptive and responsive to their needs, habits, gestures and emotions   must be user-friendly  secure  controllable  almost invisible  Pervasive computing Living in Intelligent Environments: Interfaces, Interaction and Usability Pervasive communication Intelligent User-friendly Interface 29/11/2013
  3. 3. Overview 3 Exploring different interactions with the environment… WIMP Touch Wearable Natural Language Mobile Gaze … in different topics and areas School and university Energy saving Residential appliances control Industrial sensors monitoring Universal Access Living in Intelligent Environments: Interfaces, Interaction and Usability Activity delegation 29/11/2013
  4. 4. Overview 4 LOWERING ACCESS BARRIERS DOGeye (IwC) Speak2Home dWatch (ANT, HomeSys) GrAAL IMPROVING SMART ENVIRONMENT INTERACTION MAKING PEOPLE “SMARTER” WattsUp and survey (E&B) Applus.enérgie Applus.climatique KEEPING THE HUMAN IN THE LOOP FOUNDING TECHNOLOGY Dog Living in Intelligent Environments: Interfaces, Interaction and Usability MAKING PLACES “SMARTER” RulesBook (ISAmI) 29/11/2013
  5. 5. “Energy efficient” behavior (I) 5  Creation of a smart and shared management system for energy consumption in public buildings intended for technical training     Applus.enérgie focuses on electrical energy consumptions Applus.climatique focuses on thermal energy consumptions The system has been deployed at the ISITP of Verrès and at the Politecnico (Mirafiori and Verrès campuses) Website: http://www.applus-energie.org Living in Intelligent Environments: Interfaces, Interaction and Usability 29/11/2013
  6. 6. “Energy efficient” behavior (II) 6  Design and co-conduct     3 focus groups involving 36 people (mainly students) 1 usability test involving 7 students Results confirms previous works, and gives some hints for more effective visualization of energy-related information Related publications   D. Bonino, F. Corno, L. De Russis, “Home Energy Consumption Feedback: A User Survey”, Energy and Building, Elsevier D. Bonino, F. Corno, L. De Russis, G. Ferrero, “JEERP: Energy-aware Enterprise Resource Planning”, IT Professional, IEEE Living in Intelligent Environments: Interfaces, Interaction and Usability 29/11/2013
  7. 7. dWatch 7  Wearable notification and command system prototype      low-cost and off-the-shelf handle messages coming from the environment quick access command Preliminary user testing shows interest in real-world use Publications   D. Bonino, F. Corno, L. De Russis, “dWatch: a Personal Wrist Watch for Smart Environments”, 3rd International Conference on Ambient Systems, Networks and Technologies, 2012 L. De Russis, D. Bonino, F. Corno, “The Smart Home on Your Wrist”, HomeSys: a Ubicomp workshop, 2013 Living in Intelligent Environments: Interfaces, Interaction and Usability 29/11/2013
  8. 8. GrAAL 8  Gestione di residenze assistenziali tramite sistemi di Ambient Assisted Living  AAL-ready environment  the project will start on January, 2014  Goal: help some health workers in their daily task with patients, possibly by using some end-user device Living in Intelligent Environments: Interfaces, Interaction and Usability 29/11/2013
  9. 9. GrAAL 9  First step: Need Finding design of two focus groups to be administered in December  involves all the health workers, all the educators, and a nurse of a similar structure    Preliminary discussions seems to discourage the usage of mobile devices and points toward hands-free interaction Related publications   D. Bonino, E. Castellina, F. Corno, L. De Russis, “DOGeye: Controlling your Home with Eye Interaction”, Interacting with Computers, Elsevier L. De Russis, D. Bonino, F. Corno, “The Smart Home on Your Wrist”, at HomeSys: a Ubicomp workshop Living in Intelligent Environments: Interfaces, Interaction and Usability 29/11/2013
  10. 10. Founding tech: the Dog gateway 10   Collaboration in the design and development of the Dog (Domotic OSGi Gateway) open source project Involved in Dog design improvements and code refactoring responsible for the “core” and “communication” bundles  improved overall performances  provided a better compliance with the OSGi specification  design, development (and documentation) of a RESTful Web API  improved the support for scenarios involving wearable devices like the dWatch   Refactoring led to Dog 3.0 Living in Intelligent Environments: Interfaces, Interaction and Usability 29/11/2013
  11. 11. Other projects… 11  Other projects I’m (was) involved  SMILE-O  framework for the optimization of electrical consumption and production, based on a provisional model  Energy@Home (TILab)  collaboration for the integration of different domotic systems (ZigBee and Konnex) in a software platform based on Dog  Smart Gamer  design and development of smart gaming system to emulate the behavior of an “average” trading card game player Living in Intelligent Environments: Interfaces, Interaction and Usability 29/11/2013
  12. 12. Scientific activities 12 Department editor for XRDS, The ACM Magazine for Students  Reviewer   Interact 2011 - 2013 (conference)  ACM CHI 2013 - 2014 (conference)  ACM MobileHCI 2013 (conference)  Interacting with Computer (Elsevier journal) Living in Intelligent Environments: Interfaces, Interaction and Usability 29/11/2013
