Bridging the representation and interaction challenges of mobile context-aware computing: designing agile ridesharing
Mirisaee, Seyed Hadi , Brereton, Margot, & Roe, Paul (2011) Bridging the representation and interaction challenges of mobile context-aware computing: designing agile ridesharing. In OzCHI 2011: Design Culture and Interaction, 28th November to 2nd December 2011, Australian National University, Canberra.
The increasing capability of mobile devices and social networks to gather contextual and social data has led to increased interest in context-aware computing for mobile applications. This paper explores ways of reconciling two different viewpoints of context, representational and interactional, that have arisen respectively from technical and social science perspectives on context-aware computing. Through a case study in agile ridesharing, the importance of dynamic context control, historical context and broader context is discussed. We build upon earlier work that has sought to address the divide by further explicating the problem in the mobile context and expanding on the design approaches.
