    In culturally embedded computing, we begin by examining how the technology is emblematic of its cultural context. Culturally embedded computing explicitly situates embedded computing in society, individual experience, culture, and history. Based on this new emphasis, five projects explore alternatives to traditional human-computer interaction design. Designing and building these new technologies r... View full abstract»

    An emerging area in ubiquitous computing is networked sensor systems. The typical approach is to connect sensor-actuator devices using classic network infrastructures at a low level. These networks can serve as infrastructures to dynamically integrate, sensors and actuators into complex interactive systems while providing convenient services and interfaces to users. A prominent scenario for ubiqui... View full abstract»

    We discuss about the smart antenna, which provides a solution that is both efficient in its use of the airwaves and more effective in its ability to deliver the signal. While smart antennas seem promising, especially on the level of the wireless LAN, they can't solve the problem when it comes to overcrowding. We also discuss about the most hotly debated solution to the issue of airwave overcrowdin... View full abstract»

    Unseen, a knowledge-sharing experience machine for outdoor public spaces, continuously collects real-time data on plants, insects, and animals through a multicamera vision system. Unseen's interpretation and sharing of this data invites visitors to reconsider and question their preconceptions about wildlife. We describe the conception, implementation, and evaluation of a knowledge-sharing system f... View full abstract»

    Using ethnographic research methods, the authors studied the structure of the needs and priorities of people working in a vineyard to gain a better understanding of the potential for sensor networks in agriculture. We discuss an extended study of vineyard workers and their work practices to assess the potential for sensor network systems to aid work in this environment. The major purpose is to fin...

    Expressing a cooperative control system requires combining tools from control theory and distributed computation. After reviewing several possible formalisms appropriate for the job, the authors settle on the computation and control language and illustrate its main features and advantages using a cooperative tracking task. We demonstrate some of the concepts involved in using a multirobot task. We... View full abstract»

    We examine efforts to harness biosignals to enable enhanced computer interfaces. In particular, biosignals can serve for passive health monitoring for the elderly who want to remain at home but need some level of support as they age. Such devices can directly manipulate computer interfaces to give people with limited peripheral mobility some control over their environment. In contrast to the biosi... View full abstract»

    Smart sensors are small wireless computing devices that sense information such as light and humidity at extremely high resolutions. A smart sensor query-processing architecture using database technology can facilitate deployment of sensor networks. Smart-sensor technology enables a broad range of ubiquitous computing applications. Their low cost, small size, and untethered nature lets them sense i... View full abstract»
