Abstract     

Cooperative Artefacts: Assessing Real World Situations with Embedded Technology (Full Paper)
Martin Strohbach, Hans Gellersen, Gerd Kortuem, and Christian Kray
Lancaster University

Ubiquitous computing is giving rise to applications that interact very closely with activity in the real world, usually involving instrumentation of environments. In contrast, we propose Cooperative Artefacts that are able to cooperatively assess their situation in the world, without need for supporting infrastructure in the environment. The Cooperative Artefact concept is based on embedded domain knowledge, perceptual intelligence, and rule-based inference in movable artefacts. We demonstrate the concept with design and implementation of augmented chemical containers that are able to detect and alert potentially hazardous situations concerning their storage.
