Technical structure

Our research programme is based on an obvious decomposition of the functionality of the device into separate functional platforms. Within these functional platforms we examine suitable strategies for decentralised cooperation

This leads to the following research areas:

Research area 1: Context Sensing and Analysis.

Use of distributed sensors and sensor networks for recognizing the current context, specifically with respect to the spatial configuration of users and devices on the current environment.

Research area 2: Multimodel Interaction and Visualization.

Information visualization based on distributed display infrastructures and ubiquitos displays. Adaptive interaction with an ad-hoc ensemble based on explicit task models.

Research area 3: Intention Recognition and Strategy Generation.

Recognition of user activities and user intentions based on knowledge about typical user behavior and explicit interactions. Techniques for the cooperative generation and execution of strategies for assiting user objectives by the ensemble.

Research area 4: Data Management, Resources, and Infrastructure Management.

Underlying communication and data management services for cooperative strategies. Resource-adaptive communication mechanisms for dynamic ensembles.
