2nd presentation DiY-studio introduction

  1. 1. Do-it-Yourself Creation of Pervasive, Tangibe Applications Smart Objects and Smart Applications
  2. 2. Studio Objectives <ul><ul><li>Experience the possibilities of DiY creation of pervasive applications </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pervasive applications </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Tied to everyday objects and problems </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Aware of the user and the environment </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>DiY creation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Non-expert user is able to create and innovate in unexpected ways </li></ul></ul></ul>
  3. 3. The user as an innovative creator <ul><ul><li>Traditionally, designers try to create a finished product </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>An object, an application, a tool … </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Very precise function </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>However, most innovative successes come from using objects for unexpected things </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. The user as an innovative creator <ul><ul><li>An Example: IKEA hacks </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Clever design for making inexpensive furniture that users can build by themselves </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Some users, however, decide to « ignore » the instructions… </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>¿Salad bowl as a sink? </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>¿Spherical speaker arrays? </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Our idea here <ul><ul><li>Bring this kind of « user creativity » to the domain of pervasive applications </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Provide the equivalent to glue and duct tape so that users may attach devices , tools & components to make them work together. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>See what happens </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Hopefully, it will be amazing! </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  6. 6. The Smart Object <ul><ul><li>Basically, take an ordinary object and make it « smart » </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Able to sense the environment: sensors </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Able to interact with it: effectors </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It rocks, but it’s pretty useless… </li></ul></ul>sensors+ effectors Smart chicken
  7. 7. The Smart Application <ul><ul><li>Basically, « glue » the smart objects together to perform a useful function </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What’s the « duct tape » here? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Provide an standard interface so that objects and users may interact easily </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Now we can take over the world!!! </li></ul></ul>« duct tape » + user cleverness Lots of smart chickens An army of smart chickens
  8. 8. What are we going to do here? <ul><ul><li>Create smart objects from scratch </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Well, not totally from scratch </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>We will use Arduino boards for that </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Though we could use anything else </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Create smart applications which make use of the smart objects </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Our « glue »: drivers which make a common interface for all smart objects </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Our « duct tape »: a gateway which allows to hold them all together </li></ul></ul></ul>
  9. 9. What kind of things we can achieve? <ul><ul><li>With enough time and technological support, almost anything we can think of </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Let us assume plenty of both </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>2020: World is full of IoT, smart objects, pervasive and tangible applications </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>How would be approach day-to-day challenges in this context? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>We will focus on specific problems </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. Problem statement #1: DIY granny-assistive smart flat <ul><ul><li>Grandma is going to visit for a monh </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Doesn’t know about basic arrangements </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>You don’t have time to explain </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>She will be alone most of the time </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>She is a bit deaf (e.g. won’t hear the phone) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How can you make your flat </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>instantly granny assistive </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>using smart objects? </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Problem statement #1: DIY Eco-smart neighborhood <ul><ul><li>You’re concerned with sustainability </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Reduce human ecological footprint </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Involve your neighbors in eco-friendliness </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How can smart objects contribute </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>to create an eco-enthusiast </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>neighborhood? </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. Problem statement #1: DIY Social City <ul><ul><li>One step further: the Smart City </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Reducing traffic congestion </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Providing information about plces you like </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Identify common needs among the citizens </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How can we use smart objects </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>to increase citizen </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>participation and social </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>impact? </li></ul></ul>
