Augmented Environments
{ Wed, 20 Feb 2008, 14h00 }

By: Teresa Romão

information and communication technologies have the potential to change computational interfaces and our relationship with computational appliances. Several devices can be seamlessly integrated into the world and almost “disappear” from the user´s attention, as envisioned by Mark Weiser in 1991. The paradigm of ubiquitous computing brought out concepts such as “smart objects” that can be embedded in our surrounding environments, sensing our presence and actions and reacting accordingly.

Augmented environments intuitively provide users with additional contextual information. Research is being conducted in order to achieve augmented environments that are able to sense the surroundings or even the users’ emotional state. This contextual information will then be employed to determine the appropriate data being supplied to the users, as well as the most suitable procedure of doing so. Augmented environments should not be intrusive, should adapt their response to the contextual situation and to the users behaviour and give users the right information at the right time.

This talk will give a short overview of several projects focusing on the development of augmented environments.
