UMA-P: Smart Bike Interaction that Adapts to Environment, User Habits and Companions
In modern transportation system, biking with smart bikes will be a flexible and environmental friendly option for over-crowded mega cities. Aiming at making the biking experience with smart bikes more attractive we create a playful smart bike light UMA-P that forms its own light interaction mode with the metaphor of personality. UMA-P will collect data of the biking condition and perform certain sets of light animations. With the help of UMA-P users are expected to see their smart bikes as a pet that reacts to their biking behavior, biking environment and other smart bikes nearby. A pilot user test is conducted and an increase in acceptance of smart bikes is observed. Our exploration will benefit the human-computer interaction community in designing playful interaction on future transportation which adapts to user behavior and environment.
