Personal Relative Time: Towards Internet of Watches
2011 (English)In: 2011 IEEE International Conferences on Internet of Things and Cyber, Physical and Social Computing, Los Alamitos: IEEE Computer Society, 2011, 678-682 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
We introduce an idea for connecting timekeeping devices through the Internet, aiming at assigning people their individual personal time to loosen the strict rule of time synchronization that, in many cases, causes problems in access of available resources. Information about these resources, users, and their plans are utilized to accomplish the task. Time scheduling to assign users their individual time and readjustment of their timekeeping devices is done implicitly so that they do not feel any abnormal changes during their day. This will lead to a nonlinear relationship between real (absolute) time and personal time. We explain the concept, give examples, and suggest a framework for the system.
