    In this column, we ask three central questions related to ubiquitous computing education. First, why is specialized ubicomp training needed? Next, what should the goal of such specialized training be? And finally, how should these goals be accomplished pedagogically? We argue that these questions should be answered by a community that supports new forms of teaching, training, and learning in ubiqu... View full abstract»

    How realistic is the connectivity in a testbed? We answer this question by gathering connectivity measurements from 11 datasets, on both testbeds and real-world deployments. We propose a 5-point checklist to assess the realism of a testbed deployment and introduce a visual tool to evaluate the connectivity characteristics of a deployment. View full abstract»

    Testbeds are powerful large-scale experimentation tools. Often, however, their limited scope and/or unrealistic functionality result in anecdotal use. Knowledge transfer becomes more effective through pilots, but they involve techno-economic challenges with uncertain outcomes. Platform-based design has proven a valuable strategy to overcome similar barriers. However, we identify that while this pl... View full abstract»

    Today, internet of things (IoT) platforms offer proprietary interfaces and protocols. To enable interoperable interaction with those platforms we present the generic BIG IoT API that employs a novel approach for self-description and semantic annotation to fully adapt arbitrary IoT platforms. We have deployed this approach for multiple platforms from the mobility domain. View full abstract»

    Few IoT systems monitoring energy consumption in buildings have focused on the educational community. IoT in the educational domain can jump-start a process of sustainability awareness and behavioral change toward energy savings, as well as provide tangible financial savings. We present a real-world multisite IoT deployment, comprising 19 school buildings, aiming at enabling IoT-based energy aware... View full abstract»

    We present Internet of Things (IoT) deployment in a tomato greenhouse in Russia. The IoT enabling technologies applied for this deployment comprise a wireless sensor network, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence. They are to help in monitoring and controlling of both plants and greenhouse conditions as well as predicting the growth rate of tomatoes. View full abstract»

    We address in this work novel interfaces that enable users to access digital content “in thin air” in the context of smart spaces that superimpose digital layers upon the topography of the physical environment. To this end, we collect and evaluate users’ preferences for pinning digital content in thin air, for which we report medium to high agreement levels (from 0.245 to 0.622, measured on the un...

    This is an exposition of the hardware and software hurdles that must be overcome to deploy a wearable sensor that collects all the text that it sees or hears. The text is uploaded to a standard private platform (a smartphone or a laptop) or to a cloud service for character and speech recognition followed by indexing. Selected segments are retrieved on demand. Compared to queries on the World Wide ... View full abstract»
