User Interfaces and HCI for Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments

  • Andreas Butz

Abstract

As this book clearly demonstrates, there are many ways to create smart environments and to realize the vision of ambient intelligence. But whatever constitutes this smartness or intelligence, has to manifest itself to the human user through the human senses. Interaction with the environment can only take place through phenomena which can be perceived through these senses and through physical actions xecuted by the human. Therefore, the devices which create these phenomena (e.g., light, sound, force, …) or sense these actions are the user’s contact point with the underlying smartness or intelligence.

Keywords

User Interface Ambient Intelligence Smart Environment Tangible User Interface Virtual Layer 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
