Interaction with applications and digitally augmented products more and more often takes place away from the desktop in dynamic ubiquitous computing settings. In our Smart Interaction group we address this problems by supporting the usage of distributed interaction systems. Our main research focus are Intelligent User Interfaces for Post-Desktop Interaction.
A smart product is an autonomous object designed for self-organized embedding into different environments in the course of its lifecycle, supporting natural and purposeful product-to-human interaction. Smart products proactively approach the user, leveraging sensing, input, and output capabilities of the environment: they are self-, situation-, and context-aware. The related knowledge and functionality is shared by and distributed among multiple smart products and emerges over time.
