Interoperability in Smart Exercise Environments TIVIT Results and Business Forum 12.4.2011 DIEM_Public Spaces Vesa Tornberg, Polar Electro Oy
Agenda• Targets of DIEM_Public Spaces workpackage• Polar Gym Demonstration – Polar – HUR interoperability demonstration – Smart M3 demonstration• Pilots – Verve – VirtualAquarium – Real time Feedback System
Main targets of the project• Partners: Polar Electro Oy, HUR Oy, VERVE, HealthEx and University of Oulu• Define and develop the system architecture to support device interoperability in smart exercise spaces and services • Polar Living Lab gym at first phase• Develop interoperability by utilising of existing standard communication methods• Study how to collect and refine data from the smart exercise environment to support user needs in various environments and how to integrate data from various environments to one service• To test Smart M3 possibilities in Public Space -pilots• To find new business opportunities within device and service business and their smart integration (product and/or business ecosystems)
Smart Gym-demonstration• Target is to define system architecture to achieve seamless interoperability and implement concrete demonstration in the Polar Living Lab Gym• System is also intended to be tested in Public Gym after preliminary tests• A lot of connectivity and communication elements are needed between several system component: – Heart Rate Monitor – HUR- gym equipment – HUR- databases – Polar databases (PPT.com and CMbP)
Smart M3-demonstration• The aim of this work is to build a test smart environment to the Polar gym• Simple logical architecture and ontology model is created• The first demonstration is completed Gym Gym ontology SIB RFID Training gateway database SSAP Smart-M3 KP KP Existing / Training Idesco RFID legacy DB gateway IF/API interface/API HR monitor data collector RFID Training reader RFID RFID DB reader reader
Main research themes in the presented pilots• How to collect and refine data from the smart (exercise) environment to support user needs in various environments (e.g. fitness clubs, rehabilitation centers, homes, schools)• How to integrate data from various environments to one service• Pilot pieces of smart environments in the real life situations• Pilots – Verve (rehabilitation environment) – VirtualAquarium – Real time Feedback System
Pilot in the rehabilitation environment• Goals – How to support physical activity with technology – Vocationally oriented medical rehabilitation – First phase: User centric workshops – Second phase: Field experiment with activity monitors• Experiences – Five months since beginning of the pilot, most of the participants were using the activity meter on daily basis – The findings highlight the importance of robustness and ease of use as key elements for this type of persuasive technology. – The more accurate the data is, and the more data has been gathered from a certain individual, more personalized services can be provided with less user interaction.
Virtual Aquarium• The Virtual Aquarium is a tool for providing visual feedback on measurable performance. With it, people can follow their select activities such as physical exercise in a visually appealing way.• Each user has their own fish. Its appearance and energy are related to the users activeness
Virtual Aquarium: Architecture• When other than the amount of physical exercise is visualized, the right side needs to be modified accordingly
