From Photography to Ubiquitous Capture Systems
Found in: IEEE Pervasive Computing
By Albrecht Schmidt,Bastian Pfleging,Christian Holz,Lars Erik Holmquist
Issue Date:January 2014
pp. 10-13
The invention of the charged-coupled device (CCD) lead to the development of digital cameras, which, in the last decade, have replaced nearly all analogue cameras for consumer use. The authors reflect on the move to digital photography and the implications...
Ubiquitous Connectivity in the Mountains: Enhancing the Ski Experience
Found in: IEEE Pervasive Computing
By Bastian Pfleging,Albrecht Schmidt,Florian Michahelles
Issue Date:April 2013
pp. 5-9
Today, many areas in the Alps, despite the high altitude and distance from urbanized environments, offer ubiquitous mobile phone and data connectivity, with 3G networks widely available. Many skiing resorts have recognized their users' desire for connectiv...
Interacting with 21st-Century Computers
Found in: IEEE Pervasive Computing
By Albrecht Schmidt,Bastian Pfleging,Florian Alt,Alireza Sahami Shirazi,Geraldine Fitzpatrick
Issue Date:January 2012
pp. 22-31
This discussion reflects on four themes from Weiser's original vision from a human-computer interaction perspective: computing everywhere, personal computing, the social dimension of computing, and privacy implications. The authors review developments both...
Influence of subliminal cueing on visual search tasks
Found in: CHI '13 Extended Abstracts on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI EA '13)
By Albrecht Schmidt, Bastian Pfleging, Bastian Reitschuster, Dominique Rau, Niels Henze
Issue Date:April 2013
pp. 1269-1274
The phenomenon of subliminal perception is studied in psychology and is a compelling idea to unobtrusively yet effectively convey information from the computer to the user. Previous research reports conflicting results regarding the effectiveness of sublim...
Representing indoor location of objects on wearable computers with head-mounted displays
Found in: Proceedings of the 5th Augmented Human International Conference (AH '14)
By Albrecht Schmidt, Bastian Pfleging, Markus Funk, Max Pfeiffer, Niels Henze, Robin Boldt
Issue Date:March 2014
pp. 1-4
With head-mounted displays becoming more ubiquitous, the vision of extending human object search capabilities using a wearable system becomes feasible. Wearable cameras can recognize known objects and store their indoor location. But how can the location o...
Supporting interaction through haptic feedback in automotive user interfaces
Found in: interactions
By Bastian Pfleging, Dagmar Kern
Issue Date:March 2013
pp. 16-21
The boundaries between 'the digital' and our everyday physical world are dissolving as we develop more physical ways of interacting with computing. This forum presents some of the topics discussed in the colorful multidisciplinary field of tangible and emb...
Supporting children with special needs through multi-perspective behavior analysis
Found in: Proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia (MUM '11)
By Albrecht Schmidt, Andreas Bungert, Bastian Pfleging, Meindert Havemann, Florian Alt
Issue Date:December 2011
pp. 81-84
In past years, ubiquitous computing technologies have been successfully deployed for supporting children with special needs. One focus of current research has been on post-hoc behavior analysis based on video footage where one or multiple cameras were used...
WEtransport: a context-based ride sharing platform
Found in: Proceedings of the 12th ACM international conference adjunct papers on Ubiquitous computing - Adjunct (Ubicomp '10 Adjunct)
By Albrecht Schmidt, Alireza Sahami Shirazi, Bastian Pfleging, Florian Alt, Thomas Kubitza
Issue Date:September 2010
pp. 425-426
In densely populated urban areas high amounts of traffic pose a major problem, which affects the environment, economy, and our lives. From a user's perspective, the main issues include delays due to traffic jams, lack of parking space and high costs due to...
MobiDev: a mobile development kit for combined paper-based and in-situ programming on the mobile phone
Found in: Proceedings of the 28th of the international conference extended abstracts on Human factors in computing systems (CHI EA '10)
By Albrecht Schmidt, Bastian Pfleging, Elba del Carmen Valderrama Bahamondez, Johannes Nolte, Martin Hermes
Issue Date:April 2010
pp. 3733-3738
In this paper we present MobiDev, a development kit that allows the creation of applications for mobile devices by developing directly on a mobile phone and by using paper-based sketches as a starting point for creating the user interface (UI). Although pr...
Design by physical composition for complex tangible user interfaces
Found in: Proceedings of the 28th of the international conference extended abstracts on Human factors in computing systems (CHI EA '10)
By Albrecht Schmidt, Bastian Pfleging, Christian Kray, Tanja Doering
Issue Date:April 2010
pp. 3541-3546
In this paper, we present a novel approach to create devices with tangible user interfaces by physical com-position. While the separation of the user interface from the application logic has a long tradition in software engineering, for products with tangi...
