Works in Progress department features six projects that relate to activity-based computing. The first project is on a hovering information service for mobile devices and is exploring the limits and constraints of their hovering approach. The second one analyzes spatio-temporal data to learn activity patterns-in particular, for taxi drivers. The third project proposes a conflict-resolution method for context-aware applications and is evaluating a prototype TV manager application, and the fourth project extends pervasive middleware to a mobile environment and attempts to manage and avoid conflicts. The fifth project is developing a novel sensor network for controlling power consumption, and the final project is developing an assistant tool to help end users design their own context-aware applications.
