Device to Device Proxemic Interactions

How can one device connect to an interact with another device based on proximity?

See Marquard's Section 2

Proxemic relationships between people and surfaces

How can we tune the relationship between a person and a digital surface based on proximity?

See Marquard's Section 1

Proxemic relationships between people and mobile/desktop computers

How can we tune the relationship between a person and their mobile/desktop device based on proximity?

See Marquard's Section 3

Proxemic relationships within multi-display environments (devices, srufaces, people)

How can we manage multiple relationships with different people and device types?

See Marquard's Section 4

Privacy and Security

Privacy and security are very important concerns in Ubicomp systems.

See Marquard's Section 12

More Theory

While Hall started the Proxemic theory, others have continued in it.

See Marquard's Sections 5 and 15

Frameworks and Toolkits for Sensing and Exploiting Proximity and other Information

What are the technical foundations that let us build proximity-aware and other ubicomp systems?

See Marquard's Section 9

Application area: Proximity applied to media and video spaces

These papers apply proxemics to control / design various kinds of video conferencing systems

See Marquard's Section 10

Application area: Proximity applied to Virtual Environments and Human Robot Interaction

These papers apply proxemics to control / design VE and HRI systems. This could be two topics

See Marquard's Section 11

Application area: Proximity applied to Personal Control Devices

These papers apply proxemics, where one device can be used to control another device e.g., as a remote control

These systems illustrated some of the potential directions of Proemics. The are important not only for the systems they demonstrate, but for the philosophy behind them. The first two on reactive environments in part use ideas such as presence, proximity, and exploiting spatial layouts of spaces. The work by Ballendat represents the state of the art in a proxemic-aware system. Tat Mobile is a futuristic video where some of its devices are proximity-aware.

(:title Readings on Ubiquitous Computing :) return to 701.81 home

Most of the course is based on a selection of readings from the list below. We read them ahead of a class, added a discussion point or two on the blog, then discussed them in class (sometimes with a student presentation that summarized the main points). We did not get through all of the case studies. Indeed, most of the course was spent on the foundational material. Still the case studies are good resources for students who wish to choose and perhaps present a topic within Ubicomp.

On a more general level, many of the readings on this list - particular the parts before the case studies - could also double as a foundational PhD reading list to Ubicomp.

The Ubicomp vision, by Mark Weiser

Mark Weiser is considered the 'father' of ubiquitous computing. These and the other papers by him represents his vision and early thinking. Unfortunately, an early death curtailed him from seeing the massive influence he had on the CS world.

Theory

Edward Hall lays the sociological foundations to proxemics, while Dourish introduces the notion of embodied interaction. Both inform the relevance of proxemics to Ubicomp.
