Ubiquitous Context-aware Device Control (M)

Status: Abgeschlossen

The Internet of Things and Web of Things projects are about interconnecting everyday objects and giving them the ability to communicate and cooperate within smart environments.

This project specifically aims at enabling human users and machines to find and make use of Web-enabled devices depending on their location. For instance, when a user enters his living room, his mobile phone could display information about devices in this room and offer a user interface. An especially interesting possibility here is the use of location-based macros that execute whenever a change of location is detected: For instance, a currently playing music stream could be transferred to the sound system of the room just entered. This project will heavily build on previous projects in the same domain, especially on this project.

Tools: Mainly Java, Android, Web programming (JAX-RS), JSON and the like

If you are interested in the project and would like to know more about it, drop me a line. Also, while the general direction of the project is already fixed, we can absolutely adapt to account for what you feel is most exciting in this domain.
