A Smart Home Experience using Egocentric Interaction Design Principles
2012 (English)In: 15TH IEEE International Conference On Computational Science And Engineering (CSE 2012) / 10TH IEEE/IFIP International Conference On Embedded And Ubiquitous Computing (EUC 2012), 2012, 656-665 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The landscape of ubiquitous computing comprising of numerous interconnected computing devices seamlessly integrated within everyday environments introduces a need to do research beyond human-computer interaction: in particular incorporate human-environment interaction. While the technological advancements have driven the field of ubiquitous computing, the ultimate focus should center on human agents and their experience in interacting with ubiquitous computing systems offering smart services. This paper describes egocentric interaction as a human body-centered interaction paradigm for framing human-environment interaction using proximity and human perception. A smart home environment capable of supporting physical-virtual activities and designed according to egocentric interaction principles is used for exploring the human experience it offers, yielding positive results as a proof of concept.
