Evaluating the use of ambient and tangible interaction approaches for personal indoor climate preferences [Extended Abstract]
Rittenbruch, Markus, Donovan, Jared, & Santo, Yasu (2014) Evaluating the use of ambient and tangible interaction approaches for personal indoor climate preferences [Extended Abstract]. In Proceedings of the 2014 ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing Adjunct Publication (UbiComp 2014 Adjunct), ACM Press, Seattle, WA, USA, pp. 159-162.
In this paper we describe the preliminary results of a field study which evaluated the use of MiniOrb, a system that employs ambient and tangible interaction mechanisms to allow inhabitants of office environments to report on subjectively perceived office comfort levels. The purpose of this study was to explore the role of ubiquitous computing in the individual control of indoor climate and specifically answer the question to what extent ambient and tangible interaction mechanisms are suited for the task of capturing individual comfort preferences in a non-obtrusive manner. We outline the preliminary results of an in-situ trial of the system.
