The personal universal controller system lets users interact with their appliances through automatically generated remote control interfaces on their smart phone devices. In this article, we present a framework for automatically generating appliance interfaces from abstract specifications of appliances' functions. These interfaces control each appliance's full functionality and are consistent with the phone's other interfaces. Our interfaces are also fully interactive, which incrementally adjust the appliance's features, such as volume, in real time. Our work demonstrates the feasibility of automatically generating high-quality interfaces for a wide range of appliances on a smart phone device
