Our paper "Getting Real with Ubiquitous Computing: the Impact of Discrepancies on Collaboration" (Giradin, F. and Nova, N.) has been published in the spanish HCI journal eMinds:
Ubiquitous computing is still a maturing field of investigation. The vision of the seamless integration of computers to people’s life has yet to happen, if it ever has to become a reality. Nowadays, most mobile, distributed systems and sensor technologies have their faults and limitations. Users of ubiquitous technologies often learn to avoid or rectify the systems failures. However, there is still a lack of quantitative information concerning how they impact the collaboration. Therefore, we propose to use a ‘field of experiment’ approach based on a pervasive game platform. Our aim is to rely on a mix of qualitative and quantitative evaluations to find out how uncertainties modified the collaborative processes.
It's actually Fabien's follow-up project of CatchBob, which is going to be his phd thesis topic!
