L.U.N.A. Ads Sustaining Wireless Access For Mobile Users

  1. 1. Alessandro M. Martellone*, David Tacconi*, Vincenzo Del Fatto**, Giuliana Vitiello** * Futur3 Srl, Trento ** University of Salerno L.U.N.A. Ads Sustaining Wireless Access for Mobile Users VISUAL 2008 | 10th International Conference on Visual Information System
  2. 2. L.U.N.A. Project The LUNA Project is a research project instituted by the Province of Trento What? • The objective is to realize a wide wireless network (Trento, Rovereto, Riva del Garda) • The network is totally wireless (through mesh networking) • The coverage is continuous within the cities Why ? • We want to achieve an “e-society” in the territory of Trentino Alto Adige How? • The connection services should be strategically provided to the users for free or at a cheap cost • Target users are: • Students • Professional category • Occasional users • Senior citizens VISUAL 2008 | 10th International Conference on Visual Information System
  3. 3. A project for mobile users Starting questions: • Is it possible to cover a large area with wireless technologies? • The context aware and mobile services that will be offered to users, can replace the traditional revenues methods? • Can advertising feed financial resources in the wireless telecommunication sector? These are some of the questions that L.U.N.A. Project tries to respond. In this work we have focused on a client application, L.U.N.A. Ads, able to provide the network’s services in exchange for tailored contents and advertising. VISUAL 2008 | 10th International Conference on Visual Information System
  4. 4. Comparative Analysis • We studied some applications similar to LUNA Ads. • In each of them we have evaluated: • Simplicity of installation • Portability on many operative systems • Interface pleasant and easy to understand • We refer to the following applications: • Google Desktop ( by Google Inc.) • Jing ( by TechSmith ) • Finetune VISUAL 2008 | 10th International Conference on Visual Information System
  5. 5. Comparative Analysis Google Desktop Jing Finetune Portability Installability Attractiveness Google X X Desktop Jing X Finetune X VISUAL 2008 | 10th International Conference on Visual Information System
  6. 6. Service Management Architecture How the contents are delivered to the users? • The services will be provided by Service Management. • The three main components of the Service Management Architecture are: • User profile: user interests and user context (i.e. her position) • Contents: the information requested by users • Advertisements: commercial information VISUAL 2008 | 10th International Conference on Visual Information System
  7. 7. L.U.N.A. Ads L.U.N.A. Ads is a client-side application allowing the authentication to the L.U.N.A. network and managing the services based on the user’s profile. • Visible on the screen in a strategic position. • Show to user tailor made advertising or information. • Interact with context where the user is currently immersed in. • Easy customization for the user: • It is possible to add or remove functionalities and services through plug-in. VISUAL 2008 | 10th International Conference on Visual Information System
  8. 8. Accessibility and usability of L.U.N.A. Ads There are two very important features in the L.U.N.A. Ads quality plan. Accessibility • The main reference is Stanca’s Law • It is a constitutional right access to information and services also for people with reduced sense or motion capacity. • Implementation of accessibility guidelines suggested by CNIPA* * National Centre for Information Technology in the Public Administration Usability • We have referred to: • ISO standard 13407 (Human-centred design process). • “Hallway and storefront” IBM methodology. VISUAL 2008 | 10th International Conference on Visual Information System
  9. 9. The first prototype (1/3) We present here a first prototype we have designed • We have used the L.U.N.A. project logo, a stylized moon, at the base of application development. • The interface is showed in the upper right corner of the desktop (default mode). • When the cursor is moved on the moon, a transparent window is shown. • To close the window the user moves the cursor out the area of application. VISUAL 2008 | 10th International Conference on Visual Information System
  10. 10. The first prototype (2/3) • Tabbed list with functionalities • Working area, based on the running service • Advertising area, where advertisement contents are shown VISUAL 2008 | 10th International Conference on Visual Information System
  11. 11. The first prototype (3/3) • A main service is a location-based search. • A possible scenario: a user searches a restaurant in a range area and he wants to go there by foot. • For every restaurants found it gives back information or plays a video advertising. VISUAL 2008 | 10th International Conference on Visual Information System
  12. 12. Conclusions and future work • We have shown the L.U.N.A. Ads usability study and the design of a first prototype of L.U.N.A. Ads. • The L.U.N.A. Project is at its first stage: • It is currently present and expanding in Rovereto • Covering Riva del Garda and Trento in these days • Actually, the access to the network is provided by a web access. • Then it will developed a browser toolbar with basic functionalities. • A first downloadable prototype of L.U.N.A. Ads will be introduced in the first months of 2009. VISUAL 2008 | 10th International Conference on Visual Information System
  13. 13. Questions • How the privacy management (control, transparency, accountability) can influence the usability design of application? • Today there are many mobile devices which interact with wireless network : cellular phone, Internet Table ( like Nokia N800), little and cheaper laptop (Asus EEEPc). Can we develop new interaction strategies for different devices? How? VISUAL 2008 | 10th International Conference on Visual Information System
