Intelligent Buildings and Pervasive Computing By Farrukh Khan
Paperback: $59.90
Ships in 3-5 business days
Technological advances on a broad front have made the miniaturisation of computers and intelligent devices possible. Microprocessors and the VLSI chips that are the intelligent heart of any computing... More > device have become cheaper, more powerful, compact and energy efficient. Microprocessors are capable of operating on a larger number of bytes and have found application in diverse areas such as the automobile, building control systems, battery powered intelligent stand alone systems, mobile devices and intelligent appliances. The marriage of communications technologies and computing have made it possible to communicate with intelligent machines over vast distances and it is possible to instruct a smart device, such as a heater or an air conditioner, at home to switch from a remote location. This essay takes a look at intelligent buildings in the pervasive computing age< Less

A Design Space for Pervasive Advertising on Public Displays By Florian Alt
Paperback: $39.75
Ships in 3-5 business days
Today, people living in cities see up to 5000 ads per day, many on public displays. More and more of these public displays are networked and equipped with sensors, making them part of a global... More > infrastructure that is currently emerging. Such displays provide the opportunity to create a benefit for society in the form of immersive experiences and relevant content. In this way, they can overcome the display blindness that evolved over the years. Two main reasons prevent this vision from coming true: first, public displays are stuck with traditional advertising as the driving business model. Second, no common ground exists for researchers or advertisers that outline important challenges. The main contribution of this thesis is presenting a design space for advertising on public displays that identifies important challenges - mainly from an HCI perspective. The results are envisioned to provide a basis for future research and for practitioners to shape future advertisements on public displays in a positive way.< Less
